As you all know, the Day of Prayer for the Young Piarists is held on September 26 of each year. The General Congregation established this day on the anniversary of the sinking of the ship Le Joola, in Senegal, when five young people were travelling to Dakar to begin their Initial Formation as Piarists and died in the accident.  It is a very important Day of Prayer for the Order, and it is affectionately awaited by all the Piarists.
