The Delegate for the Pacific, Fr Petelo Vito Pau, and the Provincial Fr Will Matthews attended the Regional Superiors meeting in Dili, Timor from 5th to 9th March 2018.
It was a great fraternal gathering of leaders who serve for the good of their provinces. It was also an opportune time to share their experiences. Topics like Initial and Ongoing Formation, Youth Ministry, Social Communications, Missionary Animations and Vocations were discussed during the meeting.
A featured part of the meeting was a day dedicated to Salesian Family. Some members from the Salesian Family, Salesian Cooperators and Past Pupils have presented their views on Salesian spirit.
The World Councillor for EAO Salesian Cooperators, Mr Philip Yu, from Hong Kong and the President of the Salesian Past Pupils in Timor, Mr Alberto Piedade, together with the Salesian Family Delegate Fr. Jayapalan Raphael SDB presented the Salesian family matters.
An interesting point regarding the members of the Salesian Family is not what they can do for us, but what we can do for them so that they may work with us in our missions.
