Dalat, Vietnam,, 12 June 2020 -- An example of the mission group from Vietnam:
How did you join the missionary group in the postnovitiate?
I took part in the missionary group from the first year in our post novitiate. I was invited by the group leader. Usually we participate in this group for the whole period of 3 years in this formation house.
What brings the missionary group to your personal life?
I am just one of the Dalat missionary group members in. Together with the other group members to join in this group good actions helps me remember better the call of God. However, I always pray the Rosary with Mary, our Mother and She usually helps me when I commit a mistake or face difficulties in my life.
What are the main activities and fruits of the missionary group?
My main expectation and fruit in the missionary group is to become a good model, in life and service to the young people and to our Salesian community. Besides, we learn always how to be ready in helping others and do daily some small manual works in the house (e.g. with our common sense for the community service in the maintenance and running of the house, like giving water to the trees or repairing some tools, machines).
How do you celebrate the 11th of the month as missionary day in Don Rua community?
How often meet do the missionary group members meet?
And now four members of your group applied for the mission ad gentes?
Do you have any questions?
NB: Most of the 120+ Vietnamese missionaries were sent for the missions immediately after the graduation from Dalat Philosophate - Postnovitiate. The missionary group is an important point of reference for all young Salesians who are discerning their missionary vocation ad gentes.
