VIDES Philippines Joins Relief Operations for the Victims of the Taal Volcano Eruption

VIDES Philippines staff and volunteers joined the relief operations led by the FMA Provincial House for the victims of the Taal Volcano eruption last 23 January 2020.  They were delegated to go to the Parish of San Lorenzo Ruiz in Dagatan, Taysan Batangas to meet 97 families who evacuated from their towns affected by the recent Taal eruption. They met each of the families in their respective foster homes and some in small barangay evacuation centers located in five different barangays for the intake interview and the distribution of food packs. 

Strenna of the Salesian Rector Major 2020

Watch the Strenna 2020 given by Salesian Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime.

In the Strenna 2020, the Rector Major emphasizes that “as a Salesian Family we must be attentive to the great human challenges of our world, such as honesty as people, living as a committed citizenship that seeks the good, making the Church’s social Doctrine present in everyday life, the option for the most disadvantaged, ensure that Christians and our young people are at the service of the people, through the service of politics, special attention to the encyclical Laudato Sì, the focus on climate change and care for Creation and, of course, the firm defense that the Salesian Family must have with regard to human rights and, in particular, the rights of children who tend to be the most fragile. With these approaches we want to propose the two great pillars of Don Bosco’s education and make them current.”
