South Korea - Communicating Christ Today
Seoul, South Korea - October 2022 - Since mid-September, the "Korean Martyred Saints" Province of South Korea (KOR) has been preparing for the Salesian Missionary Day (SMD) 2022, under the theme "Communicating Christ Today." Given that SMD 2022 aims to bridge the generational gap in digital technology, raise interest and offer training to all Salesians on opportunities for evangelization in the digital world and particularly through social networks, animating this journey is the Provincial Commission for Missions, Coordinated by Fr. Stephen Yu ji-hun, in collaboration with the Commission for Social Communication, led by Delegate, Fr. Samuel Yu myong-il. Before the end of September, the Korean version of the animation booklet (52 pages in English, 60 pages in Korean) was published, a good quality animation material for personal or community reading or sharing. In addition, each community was invited to pray the SMD 2022 prayer during their Vespers each day, and to send a 3-minute video clip (narrative, music video, advertisement, tik-tok style) to the Provincial Mission Office from which, at SMD 2022, the best will be awarded prizes. This year, finally, after a two-year hiatus, the SMD will be carried out in presence, on October 23, in the Provincial House in Seoul, with the participation also of members of the Salesian Youth Movement, the young Salesian Cooperators, and the Past Pupils.
