Renewal of ASC Promise in Jakarta

By Ms. Olivia Ernie Djohan

Jakarta, Indonesia, 21 July 2018 -- The members of Jakarta Center of Salesian Cooperators have renewed their Promise during the Eucharistic celebration, at the end of the recollection preached and guided by Fr. Andre Delimarta SDB.

It was really a great honor to have the presence and full participation of the newly elect first Provincial of Indonesia, Fr. Andrew Wong SDB. All 23 Salesian Cooperators got a new energy to follow Jesus with the heart of Don Bosco:

    ... Drawn by Your merciful Love, I wish to love You in return by doing good.

    For this reason, I PROMISE to live out the Project of Apostolic Life of the Association of Salesian Cooperators with commitment. That is:

    • to be a faithful disciple of Christ in the Catholic Church;
    • to work in Your Kingdom, especially for the advancement and salvation of the young;
    • to deepen and give witness to the Salesian spirit;
    • to collaborate, in Family communion, in the apostolic initiatives of the Local Church.

    Give me, O Father, the strength of Your Spirit, so that I might know how to be a faithful witness to these commitments.

    May Mary, Help of Christians, Mother of the Church, assist me and guide me in this life choice.

    Early Saturday morning, 26 Salesian Cooperators gathered at Wisma SDB in Sunter-Jakarta, in order to renew their Promise. It was also the first time the Cooperators officially met with the newly elected Provincial of Ina Vice Province, Fr. Andrew Wong SDB, who had just arrived in Jakarta one week before. Fr. Andrew greeted each member with such a warm welcome, and he eagerly participated in the meeting from the beginning until the end.

    The morning session began with a recollection given by Fr. Andre Delimarta SDB. The theme of the recolection was “Becoming Fertile Soil”, which was taken from the parable of the soils (Mat 13:1-9;18-23) and the parable of the talents (Mat 25:14-30). Fr. Andre discussed in great lengths about how the Cooperators could change and be fruitful as disciples of Christ. At the end of the recollection was the personal reflection and sharing in small groups.

    The meeting was concluded with the Eucharist, wherein the Cooperators renewed the Promise and thus received blessings and new strength to continue on their journey to become the fertile and fruitful Cooperators.
