The future is in good hands.”

By Afia Enosa SDB

       Brunswick (Melbourne), Australia, 27 April 2023 -- Within his very tight schedule for the Centenary celebrations, the Rector Major, Father Ángel Fernández Artime made a short visit to the community in Brunswick. He was welcomed by Father Phillip Gleeson (Rector) and all members of the Salesian community as well as volunteers, parents and children from the Youth Centre; Hostel residents; representatives of the Parish and the Don Bosco Foundation and other lay people who are helping out with many Salesian activities.

       He spent time with confreres and guests who came to welcome him, especially the young ones. He expressed his joy in seeing that the Salesians in Brunswick are serving a very diverse group of people in the Youth Centre, Hostel and Parish. He said, it brings him joy and happiness seeing this great work of my family. The future of the Province is burning so bright.

       Parents and young people took photos with Fr. Ángel. It was an exciting moment for some parents to meet the Rector Major for the very first time. He was delighted with such a multicultural gathering, including Australians, Lebanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Indians, Egyptians, Argentinians and Italians. Later in the afternoon, many invited guests from different parts of our mission in Brunswick joined with the Rector Major for afternoon tea before he departed for his visit to Clifton Hill.

       Fr. Ángel thanked all members of the community in Brunswick for their great effort with the work that still provided for the future of the Congregation and especially for nurturing the young people who are under our special care. “I want to express my sincere gratitude for the hard work you have been doing and continuing to do for all people. Thank you for keeping the charism and the dream of Don Bosco alive. Many of us won’t be around for the bicentennial, the young people who are here today will; some will become benefactors or volunteers for this place, and I am confident the future of this community and Province is in good hands.” (Translated by Father Frank Moloney). He encouraged all members in the community to continue their service to the Province, Congregation, and the Church faithfully and with compassion.
