Hong Kong - Manila - Ho Chi Minh City - Rome, Sunday, 15 June -- A 90 minute sharing has taken place among the EAO leadership of the two largest lay groups of the Salesian Family. It involved Mr Philip Yu (ASC World Councillor for the EAO Region), Fr Joseph Nguyen Thinh Phuoc (EAO SDB Regional Councillor), Br. Dominic Nam (World Delegate for the Don Bosco Past Pupils and Salesian Cooperators) and moderator Fr Vaclav.
In order to help the recently appointed World Delegate for both groups (ASC and DB Alumni), the former and present SDB regional councilor with Br. Nam were listening to the situation and needs of both largest lay groups of the Salesian Family. Lively sharing developed around three main themes:
- EAO regional strategies for the animation of each group (about 'rejuvenation' of the membership through more direct involvement in the Youth Ministry - SYM)
- Formation of the respective SDB delegates for each group at the province and local level, e.g. Resource manual for the ASC delegate on the Boscolink.
- Fruitful celebration of the 150th birthday of the Past Pupils of Don Bosco (24 June 2020) with their Prayer-Promise already translated into 12 EAO languages and a series of interview with Past Pupils of each of the 23 EAO countries (Youtube) already launched.
We wish Br. Dominic Nam a similar learning experience of listening to the regional leadership in the other 10 Regions of the Salesian Cooperators along with their colleagues in the Past Pupils of Don Bosco.
