The EAO Social communication and Formation delegates were also happy to visit this meaningful venue during the last day of the 2019 meeting, last November.
The EAO Delegates, guided by the Viceprovincial, Fr. Domingos Leong, were able in 30 minutes time to get a deeper insight not only into the history, pedagogy and spirituality of our Father and Founder, but especially into the moving history of 113 years of our mother province.
From the Macau foundation (1906), through the Vicariate of Shiu Chow with the Martyrdom of Bishop Versiglia and Fr. Caravario, following the marvelous development of the 20 schools in Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan over the years, the numerous Salesian witnesses, 'confessors of faith', and the richness of Salesian charism expressed in many vibrant groups of the Salesian Family, Salesian Bulletin, Youth ministry and contribution to civil society and local Chruch.
The “Discovery Centre” in Hong Kong looks like the “Salesian Historic Hall” in Seoul provincial house (Korea), Hua Hin Salesian Hall (Thailand), Manila-Makati Salesian Missionary Exhibition (Philippines) or Cimatti Museum in Tokyo (Japan).
And there’s hope that other EAO Provinces will also offer insight into the Salesian rich charismatic history to the young, lay mission partners, Salesian Family members.
