The 19th of March marked another successful Salesian Animators of Malta Encounter (SAME). This edition focused primarily on the Youth Synod coming up later on this year. The theme Share the Journey provided the perfect setting to get in touch with ourselves by ourselves as well as through our community. The event started off at the Verdala Palace Grounds where, in groups, we had the time to explore different aspects about ourselves with others, reflect on nature and the environment, and talk about occupations, the economy and our relations with those around us.
