Special General assembly of the Salesian Cooperators Japan.
  
TOKYO: 9 May 2011 -- Saturday 7 May saw the three yearly Special General Assembly of the Salesian Cooperators in Japan take place at Chofu. The event, which began late morning, was attended by some forty Cooperators representing the twelve groups in the Province. It concluded in the afternoon. During Mass, at which the Provincial, Fr Aldo Cipriani presided, three new candidates made their promise and entered Don Bosco's ranks. There are 144 Salesian Cooperators in Japan.
    During the meeting, led by the newly elected coordinator, Mrs Catherine Maruyama, assisted by the new members of the Provincial Council, the report on the previous year's activities was presented. The year in Japan concludes on 31 March.         They looked at activity for the coming year. The first major appointment will be the meeting of the provincial councils for the four Salesian Family Groups in Japan. This will be on Thursday 12 May at the Sisters of Charity of Jesus..
    A number of the Japanese Salesian Cooperators are advanced in age, some are sick, which means they are limited to prayer as their means of participation, but Blessed Alexandrina Maria Da Costa teaches us how it is possible to cooperate with Don Bosco even when confined to a bed of suffering. The group considered how it might be strengthened with new and young members to accomplish in Japanese society what Don Bosco might do if he were here amongst us today.
