27 September 2015 was dedicated mainly to introspection and brain-storming. After the Holy Mass presided over by Rt. Rev. Thomas Menamparambil and concelebrated by four Salesian Bishops and over a hundred priests, the gathering broke into various groups to discuss matters pertaining to each group.
The members of the family are Salesians (SDB), Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (FMA), The Missionary Sisters of Mary Help of Christians (MSMHC), The Mary Help of Christians Association (ADMA), The Catechists Sisters of Mary Immaculate Help of Christians (SMI), The Sisters of Maria Auxiliatrix (SMA), Visitation Sisters of Don Bosco (VSDB), Don Bosco Secular Institute (DISCIPLES), Women Volunteers of Don Bosco (VDB), Salesian Cooperators and the Past Pupils of Don Bosco (ALUMNI). The Rector Major spoke to individual groups and thus streamlined the future course of the salesian family.
