EAO Congress 2020 – Vietnam


The 10th Regional Congress of Salesian Cooperators

23 – 26 July 2020



LOVE, LIVE for and SERVE the Young



Carried over the initiatives from last Congress in Tokyo, particularly the “For the Young” project in each province of EAO, we join hand-in-hand to walk-the-talk in our real life as a Salesian Cooperator the past three years. Now it’s time we come together and share our fruit, our experience and our lessons learnt in order to reinforce our LOVE of the Young, LIVE our unique vocation with the Young, and as our dearest Rector Major said the whole Salesian Family is to SERVE the Young! Of course, selecting the right person to serve the Region for the next six years would be another equally important objective to accomplish this time. Trust the Holy Spirit work among us to transform our dreams into reality.



Please prepare to arrive before 2:00 pm on 23rd and depart 2:pm on 26th July 2020. For more details, please download  the registration package from Vietnam Province with the links belows. In case there is any concern about the costs, kindly advise and we will try our best to help.

As I mentioned at the regional meeting prior to World Congress last year, we all had to prepare for candidates of the next World Councillor, my successor, and I also reminded again during our first regional formators workshop earlier this year. I believe you all have good candidates on hand now. May I suggest each province nominate at least 1 member and at most 2 members of the Association for the election?

Please fill out the nomination form (click here to download) and send to me together with our Regional Delegate Fr. Suphot Riungam <suphotsdb@yahoo.com> no later than 1st May 2020 by e-mail.



For all Provincial Coordinators, please make sure this message reach all of your fellow members as soon as possible so that everyone can well prepare for it financially, physically and spiritually. Kindly prepare to share “For the Young” project as well, with one written report and photos for poster session at the Congress.


Mary, Help of Christian pray for us.  See you all in Vietnam!
