Correspondence with Missionaries...
Letter to the Mission Superior
Dear Rev. Fr. Klement Vaclav,
Greetings from Divyadaan, Salesian Institute of Philosophy. We hope that this letter finds you in the best of health. This letter is to inform you of the missionary group in Divyadaan and its objectives and activities.
The Missionary group in Divyadaan is a group of young Salesians volunteering already now to work in the Missions. At present there are 14 members under the animating presence of Fr.Tony D’souza, a former missionary in Africa and Kuwait. The motto for the year 2012-13, which we have chosen is “BE MY WITNESSES .” The group basically animates the Liturgy on 11th of the every month in our community. Animations include, besides the Holy Mass, guided meditation, rosary, adoration, evening prayers or prayer services etc. The group actively and creatively animates the community. In addition to this we have the “missionary week” from 4th of November to 11th of November.
In this academic year we have also started a blog named ‘Divyadaan Missionary’(http://divyamission.blogspot.in/). We are venturing further by communicating with other missionaries whom we know, and we have created an E-mail ID (firstname.lastname@example.org ) to facilitate communication. The blog deals with different topics and regular area-wise missionary activity information. It will be updated every week. We ourselves receive twice a month talks from our animator Fr. Tony who is very enthusiastic and is the brainchild of these new initiatives. His conferences are simple yet thought provoking. In all these endeavors we are duly supported by our Rector, Fr. Savio D’Souza. We also have the missionary notice board where we post various animations like Cagliero 11, as well as replies of the missionaries we correspond with. The group has been very closely following the deliberation of the missionary work of the Salesian in the Muslim world.
Dear Father, thank you for the interest you have manifested by requesting Fr. Tony for our contact details. We assure you our prayers and look forward to your own personal guidance for our group and our individual formation to be Salesian missionaries.
Thanking you in anticipation for the support and encouragement,
Divyadaan Missionary Group
