Rosy Mascarenhas and Catherine Fernandes, Province Delegates for the S. Cooperators participated in the same. There were relevant and refreshing sessions on the theme, “As Yeast in today’s Human Family: The Role of S. Cooperators” in the present context of Strenna 2023 and Synod 2021-24 in the Salesian Family. The World Delegate of the Salesian Family Fr.
