Having left Rome on Wednesday afternoon after a stop in Dubai, Fr Chávez and Fr Bregolin arrived at 4 in the afternoon yesterday, after a journey of about 24 hours, at the “Incheon” airport of Seoul. Here they were very warmly welcomed by the members of the local Salesian Family led by the Provincial Fr Stephanus Nam, which more than restored their enthusiasm and energies.
From the airport they were taken to the Provincial House where in a happy and family atmosphere the Rector Major and his Vicar greeted the members of the community and got to know more about the Novices of the Province with whom they spent the evening.
Afterwards accompanied by Fr Nam, Fr Chávez and Fr Bregolin, paid a visit to the Don Bosco Youth Centre where the many youngsters present welcomed them very enthusiastically. The Rector Major gave them the “Good Night” and after a group photograph ended a busy day.
