Vocations have decreased in Australian end while flourishing in the Pacific. Aging population of Salesians in Australia is balanced by the youthfulness of those in the Pacific. Salesian schools are now run by dedicated lay people with authentic spirit of Don Bosco. New Salesian works have been established in New Zealand and Salelologa island in Samoa.

Finally, Fr. Moloney thanks all Salesians and lay collaborators for their contribution to the province during his term as the provincial. [read the full message]
