Russia - Don Bosco is alive and well in Yakutsk

08 November 2019

Yakutsk, Russia - November 2019 - The Salesian community in Yakutsk, in Russian Siberia, concluded the Extraordinary Missionary Month on November 3 with a trip on the "mountain of love", together with some young people, collaborators, students and their parents. The program was also attended by a family from Vietnam that has lived in Yakutsk since 2000 and that only this year came into contact with the Catholic community, which they had been looking for a long time. There were many activities during the month of October that deepened the theme "Baptized and Sent", proposed by Pope Francis. In this perspective, every week the parishioners could meditate on the meaning of being missionaries today.
