Salesian Sisters of the South Pacific Region began their Provincial Chapter on the evening of 15th August, the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, with a Eucharist led by Fr Will Matthews SDB.
This chapter is being held at the Salesian Sisters community in Scoresby, Victoria. Many delegates from Australia, Samoa and Solomon Islands are in attendance.
It is a preparation of their General Chapter XIII with the theme 'Being with the young people today; a home that evangelizes.'
Salesian sisters are currently involved in many youth related works from child care to university chaplaincy, parish ministry, youth hostel, youth ministry, migrant education and many others.
Sadly, the Sisters lost two of their pioneers, Sr Christina Swan and Sr Sarah Hanley, to the good Lord.
Please remember the Salesian sisters who have gone to eternal life, and to those who are still working with the young in this region.
