Living the Vocation of Salesian Cooperator
Each Salesian Cooperator is alive with the Salesian spirit, cares about young people wherever they live, especially those who are the poorest or have been exploited and suffered any kind of violence.
Although Vietnamese Salesian Cooperators are still young, they also try their best to fulfill their own vocation, to join together in teaching catechism classes; taking care of and giving scholarships to poor children to continue going to school; opening tailoring classes, visiting and supporting social works and orphans, disabled, street children, vulnerable children of ethnic minorities and collaborate with their parish priest in catechesis, join different Church associations.
Salesian Cooperators are not simply an Association, but they received a call from God (vocation) to live forever.
Salesian Cooperators are part of the great Salesian Family, with the same charism as the religious SDB and FMA. At the same time the Salesian Cooperators are nourished by receiving the sacraments diligently, especially the Eucharist; they love Mary in a special way and they try to live and practise the Word of God in their life.
