This time the non-formal invitation to the Salesians came from Kuching Archbishop John Ha. The FIN provincial Fr Paul Bicomong, his Economer Fr Elu Ulandal, and Fr Noel Villafuerte, a Filipino missionary based in Surabaya (ITM), are happy with the fruits of this short visit.

  • "The Holy Spirit gives us the ability to dream"

    The Synod of Bishops on young people began in a difficult and apparently unfavorable context for the Church, amid tensions, disbelief, decline in vocations and open challenges to the Church's teachings on important issues such as the right to life and the role of the Christian faith in the social fabric and in human rights. On the other hand, despite the complex circumstances surrounding this event, a sign of communion and hope is the presence of two continental Chinese bishops who "for the first time" can participate in a Synod.





    “Many of us cannot imagine a life without Don Bosco, without Salesians, and we can attest that without him we wouldn’t have fallen in love with God in a ‘crazy’ way, full of laughter and great experiences.”
