(ANS - Darkhan) - Fr Simon Lee, a Salesian missionary from South Korea, has been working in Mongolia for 18 years and has been stationed in Darkhan, in the north-central area of the country for over 12 years. Following Don Bosco's example and his passion for spreading the good press, Fr Lee is giving great impetus to the activities of the local Salesian publishing house, "Don Bosco Media", aware of the importance of this service, especially in a context where the Christian presence is very small (just over 2.2%).
(ANS - Quito) - After several years of formation and discernment, Fausto Siavichay and David de la Cruz have decided to say "yes" forever to God and to pastoral work in the style of Don Bosco. With their perpetual professions, which they issued on 25 January, they have committed themselves to leading a chaste, poor and obedient life in the service of the Salesian Congregation and of the Church. A few days before this fundamental stage of their life, Fausto and David spoke of the meaning of this event in their journey of formation as religious.
