Salesian Visits

On Friday 7 November the Salesian Community here at Chadstone welcomed Fr Veclav Klement S.D.B., a member of the Salesian General (World) Council who has responsibility for the East Asia Region of the ‘Salesian World’.

Having been elected to this role in the recent General Chapter (March-April), Fr Klement is making a brief visit to the Provinces of the Region. His visit here coincides with the gathering of Directors of YOUTH MINISTRY from each of the Provinces in this region (China, Korea, Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, The Philippines, Indonesia-East Timor and Australia-Pacific) which takes place at the Salesian Retreat Centre at Lysterfield during the second week of November.

Hosting the member of the General Council for this Region and representatives from each Province who have responsibility for YOUTH MINISTRY will be a challenging exercise, but one that will, no doubt, bring a burst of new energy to our Salesian Mission amongst young people here in Australia. May Melbourne smile on all the visitors.
