Best wishes is your contribution to AustraLasia!

By Our Own Correspondent

EAO, 7 November 2017 -- Twenty years ago (exactly on November 7,1997) during the Regional meeting of the Provincials and Soc.Com. Delegates of the EAO provinces with Fr. Martinelli (General Councilor for the SC and Salesian Family) was born the 'Email news-service AustraLasia' from a simple collection of few email addresses and invitation to share. From 1997 until November 2017 not less than 4500 news items were shared by email and recently also via SNS among the EAO Salesian Family members.

During the incoming EAO regional meeting of the Social Communication Delegates (November 10-14) will be present also the General Councilor for SC, Fr. Filiberto Gonzalez and 20 provincial delegates SDB with some Lay Mission Partners. On this occasion will be celebrated also the 20th Birthday of the regional news service - ministry of communion - AustraLasia & Boscolink - will be distributed 200 Certificates of Appreciation to all SDB and Salesian Family members who supported and contribute over the years!

The Rector Major Fr. Angel appreciated on different occasions the growth in communion amongst the provinces of EAO region: "It is highly valued, the effort that the EAO Region is making in print and video translations. These are modes of communication that bring the reality of the Congregation and the Rector Major closer to the brothers, allowing us to grow in a sense of belonging and participation. Likewise continue to push AustraLasia - Don Bosco Link, which unites and makes the Congregation visible in the Region..." (EAO Team Visit 2017, Hua Hin).

One of the translators of AustraLasia in his own language shares his conviction: "Happy to celebrate the 20th Birthday! I will continue to try my best to spread out Salesian charism to everyone, especially to the young. From the time I began post the Salesian news in Facebook, many readers con contact these news, also Salesian Cooperators and Don Bosco Past pupils." (Fr. John Baptist)

Since the launch of the new BOSCOLINK website ( on Feb 3, 2015 were shared more than 1550 news items. Daily news service in English is further picked up by the Salesian Central News Agency (ANS: in 7 languages and many news are translated into Vietnamese, Japanese and Chinese.

Thanks and congratulations to all who did contribute over past 20 years to this communion tool and EAO regional 'digital sharing playground' - with their news text and photos, with translation and simply passing the good news to other Salesian family members. The best way to celebrate is simply to contribute (!

Happy Birthday!

    From the General Councilor for the Social Communication:

    Congratulations for this anniversary of AutraLasia and now Don Bosco Link.
    It has been and is a very important way of communicating information, a sense

     来たるEAO広報担当者会議(11月10日-14日)でも、広報顧問フィリベルト・ゴンザレス神父を迎え、20名の管区担当者会員が信徒ミッション・パートナーと共に参加する。この機会に、地域ニュースサービス、交わりの奉仕職であるAustraLasia & Boscolinkの20歳の誕生日が祝われ、これまでにこの奉仕を支え、貢献してきた会員、サレジオ家族のメンバー皆にあてて200枚の感謝状が贈られる。

     総長アンヘル神父はさまざまな機会に、EAO地域諸管区の交わりが成長していることを評価している:「印刷物やビデオの翻訳にEAO地域が注いでいる努力は高く評価されます。これらは、サレジオ会と総長の生きた姿を会員により身近なものとし、私たちは帰属意識、参加の意識を成長させることができるのです。同様に、AustraLasia – Don Boscolinkも引き続き推し進めてください。これは、地域を一致させ、地域において会を目に見えるものとします。……」(EAO Team Visit 2017, Hua Hin)

     AustraLasiaを母国語に翻訳している翻訳者の一人は自分の確信を伝えている:「20歳の誕生日を祝うことができ、喜んでいます! サレジオのカリスマを皆に、特に若者に広めるため、引き続きベストを尽くします。Facebookにサレジオのニュースを載せ始めてから、多くの読者がそのニュースについて、またサレジアニ・コオペラトーリやドン・ボスコ同窓生について問い合わせてきています。」(ジョン・バプティスト神父)


     この20年間、交わりの道具、EAO地域の‘デジタルな分かち合い・遊び場’であるこのサービスのために、ニュース記事や写真、翻訳の提供によって、またただ良いニュースをほかのサレジオ家族のメンバーに転送することによって貢献したすべての人に感謝、そしておめでとう。この誕生日を祝う最も良い方法は、投稿すること(eao[at]!  ([at]を@に変えてください)
