(ANS – Ruteng) – The first goal of the Salesians is to serve the Church and young people. So, the Salesians are happy to accept whatever work could be given to them, because they are serving the Catholic community with the charism of Don Bosco by evangelizing poor young people and encouraging vocations. For this reason, after the first exploratory visit last October 2019 to the three dioceses of Flores Island (Ruteng, Maumere and Ende), on 13-17 September the “St. Louis Versiglia” (INA) Vice-province Superior, Fr Andrew Wong, accompanied by Br. Bernardinus Mei, paid a visit to the Ruteng diocese, emerging as the possible new presence of the Salesians of Indonesia in this mostly Christian island located in the Eastern part of Indonesia (East Nusa Tenggara).

(ANS – Machala) – In Fr Rubinsky Sánchez's diary, the date of 12 March is highlighted with a spherical shape so as not to forget it. From that day on, the life of this Salesian priest and the community of Machala took a 180° turn. It was no longer possible to be near the parishioners or to accompany the children in the playground. The directive was clear: stay at home so as not to catch the coronavirus.

(ANS - Rome) - On Sunday 27 September the Church celebrates the 106th World Day of Migrants and Refugees, on the theme of internally displaced persons (IDPs), chosen by Pope Francis, with the motto: "Like Jesus, forced to flee."
