EAO Good Night Talk (78)

Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam 

05 September 2020 


Dear confreres, members of the Salesian Family and friends,


In our East Asia Oceania Region, the last six months have been a great trial for us. We had to stop or put in pending many of our works and services as the pandemic is still going on. We have to confess that we are facing an uncertain future and many communities have not yet had sustainable programs to respond to the urgent needs of the young. Nevertheless, like our Founder Don Bosco, our Salesian family members do not give up.


The General Councillors are searching ways to fulfil their animation functions among provinces. For example, Fr. Santos Gildasio, Councillor for Social communication has created online meetings with those in charge in each region. The General Councillor for Youth ministry, Fr. Garcia Angel has contacted and dialogues with each delegate for Youth ministry in each province of the world and those of our Region. Fr. Garcias Angel sent us a wonderful synthesis where he appreciates the resilience and creativity of all provinces in our Region regarding services to the young in this difficult moment.


And then, through the facilitation of the former Regional, Fr. Vaclav Klement, the Delegate for Salesian Co-operators and Alumni, Brother Dominic Nam, and myself, have had the opportunities to contact those in charge of alumni of the provinces, both Salesians and leaders of alumni themselves at the national and provincial levels.


Beside, together with those in charge of vocation ministry in EAO regions, we had a wonderful online meeting to know one another, to know the challenges of this specific ministry, that is, searching for, culturing and forming the candidates to Salesian consecrated life. We also exchanged the best practices we have completed in this demanding yet rewarding ministry.


For me, it’s amazing to meet people of the two sectors of Salesian services, those in charge of the alumni, taking care of the young who come out of our Salesian formation settings, who have received our Salesian formation and completed it, and those in charge of the incoming candidates to Salesian life, to start the process of initial formation.


Both ministries are integral in our Salesian mission. We do not really stop our services when the young get out of our schools, oratories or youth groups to advance in their own life. They need us to continue our accompaniment as they desire to continue the relationship with Salesian roots. At the same time, requesting the help of adult alumni under various forms, we could shape our current formation programs to respond to the real needs of the society. Listening to the achievements, I learn that the Salesian alumni groups or associations at local or national levels are very important. This year, they are celebrating 150th anniversary of Salesian Alumni association with various programs in their availability, for example, the Gexpresso, an online platform for young alumni in EAO region.


During the sharing, one interesting issue came out. The alumni wish to have Salesians to accompany them. But the Salesians are not sufficient in terms of number, there is in fact a limited number of candidates. And the alumni see the issue too. One of them raised the question: Why don’t we also care about the vocations to Salesian life? We do not only care about the “recruitment of Salesian graduates” to become active members of the Alumni associations, but also introduce the young to Salesian Society too!


Dear Confreres, members of Salesian Family and friends, the article 21 of The Charter of Salesian Family, entitled, Apostolic Co-responsibility reminds us that Don Bosco involved many people in his educational and missionary work; at all levels he tried to ensure that attention was given to his boys and to people in need.


The Salesians are invited to continue to accompany their alumni and the alumni are also invited to be involved in Salesian work, in which vocation ministry is an essential part for both groups to continue and expand the Salesian educational and evangelizing services.


Fr. Joseph Nguyen Thinh Phuoc, SDB

EAO Regional Councillor

    <日本語訳>

    会員の皆さん、サレジオ家族、友人の皆さん、

     東アジア・オセアニア地域の私たちにとり、この6か月は大きな試練でした。パンデミックはまだ続いていますが、私たちは多くの事業、奉仕を止めたり棚上げにしたりしなければなりませんでした。将来が不確かであることを、私たちは認めざるをえません。そして多くの共同体は、若者の緊急な必要に応えるための持続可能な計画を描けずにいます。しかし、私たちの創立者ドン・ボスコにたが違わず、私たちサレジオ家族もあきらめません。

     最高評議員は、諸管区を活気づける働きをどのように果たせるか、その方法を模索中です。たとえば、広報顧問のサントス・ジルダジオ神父は、各地域の担当者とのオンライン会議を始めました。青少年司牧顧問のガルシア・アンヘル神父は、世界各地の、また私たちの地域の各管区の青少年司牧担当者と連絡を取り、対話をしています。ガルシア・アンヘル神父はすばらしいまとめを私たちに送ってくれました。その中で、この困難の時に若者に奉仕する、EAO地域諸管区の粘り強さと創意工夫の豊かさを評価しています。

     そして、前地域顧問ヴァツラフ・クレメンテ神父の働きかけを通して、サレジアニ・コオペラトーリと同窓会連合の地域デレガート、ドミニク・ナム修士と私は、各管区の同窓会の責任者、すなわちサレジオ会員および国のレベルまたは管区レベルで同窓会のリーダーを務める皆さんと連絡を取る機会を得ました。

     さらに私たちは、EAO地域の召命司牧担当者と、互いを知るため、またサレジオ会奉献生活への候補者を見いだし、培い養成するこの奉仕職に投げかけられている挑戦について知るための、すばらしいオンライン会議を行いました。また、多くを要求されると同時に豊かに報いられるこの奉仕職において実施された成功例を分かち合いました。

     私にとり、サレジオ会の働きのこの二つの部門の人々と出会えたことは感動的でした。サレジオの養成を受け卒業した、サレジオの教育の場出身の若者たちを世話する同窓会の担当者、そして初期養成の歩みを始めるため入ってくるサレジオ会生活の候補生の担当者です。

     どちらの奉仕職も、サレジオの使命の一部です。若者が学校やオラトリオ、青年グループを卒業し、人生の歩みを進めるとき、私たちの奉仕が終わるわけではありません。サレジオのルーツとの絆を保ちたいと願う若者たちに、私たちは同伴を続ける必要があります。同時に、さまざまな形で大人の同窓生の助けを求めながら、現行の養成・教育プログラムを社会の実際の必要に応えるものとして形作ることができるでしょう。私は成果について耳を傾けながら、支部あるいは国のレベルのサレジオの卒業生のグループや同窓会が非常に大事なものであることを学びました。今年、同窓会は150周年を祝っており、さまざまなプログラムが用意されています。たとえば、Gexpresso、EAO地域の若い同窓生のためのオンラインのプラットフォームなどがあります。

     分かち合いの中で、一つ興味深い課題が浮かび上がりました。同窓生はサレジオ会員の同伴を望んでいます。しかしサレジオ会員は、人数的に十分ではありません。対応できる人は限られています。同窓生も、この課題に気づいています。その一人はこのように問いかけました:サレジオ会の召命に、私たちも関心をもってはどうか? 私たちは同窓会の積極的なメンバーになるよう「サレジオ同窓生をリクルートする」ことに心を向けるだけでなく、若者にサレジオ会を紹介することにも心を向けるのです!

     親愛なる会員、サレジオ家族、友人の皆さん、サレジオ家族憲章の、「使徒職における共同責任」と題された第21条は、ドン・ボスコが教育、福音宣教の事業に多くの人の参加を巻き込んだことを思い起こさせてくれます;ドン・ボスコはあらゆるレベルで、少年たちに、また助けを必要とする人々に目が向けられるよう、努力したのです。

     サレジオ会員は同窓生の同伴を続けるよう招かれ、そして同窓生はサレジオの事業に参加するよう招かれています。その中で、召命司牧は、サレジオ会員にとっても、同窓生にとっても、サレジオの教育と福音宣教の奉仕を継続させ、広げるために欠かせないのです。

    EAO東アジア・オセアニア地域顧問 ヨセフ・グェン・ティン・フォック, SDB
