East Timor - Construction of new chapel officially launched

07 October 2020

Uai-Mori, Viqueque, East Timor - September 2020 - Some time ago, the community of Uai-Mori, Municipality of Viqueque, asked the Salesian missionary Fr Eligio Locatelli to build a new chapel, since the area of the community is isolated. Fr Locatelli in turn asked for help from the Past Pupils of Don Bosco in East Timor to support the construction of the new chapel and a residence for the priests. The Past Pupils enthusiastically welcomed the proposal and in July 2020 they started a fundraiser. On 27 September, Msgr. Basilio do Nascimento, Bishop of Baucau, officially started the construction of the new chapel through the celebration of Mass and the blessing of the area in the presence of civil and religious authorities and past pupils. The Uai-Mori community and the Salesian Family agreed that the Salesian martyr Saint Callisto Caravario, protector of the Salesian Vice Province of East Timor, be also the protector of the Uai-Mori community.
