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.

The youngest of the video-conference group (Mr. Niel Evangelista,27) offered his service as meeting secretary and reporter on Facebook: "While having our meeting this afternoon, one of the participants had a very noisy background. According to him, the youth were having an activity. We all exclaimed: "ugh, Salesians." It's good to be reminded of the "noise" of the young. As we take on our individual roles in the Asia-Oceania region, we pray that we may recognize that we are not alone in this mission. We have the entire Salesian Family... and we have this loud and vibrant youth (also at the Majcen Vocational Training Center in Vietnam!) with us."

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.
