The quarterly digital newsletter (magazine) ‘Newsflash’ (n. 39) of the World Confederation of Don Bosco Past Pupils is again with us in 5 languages (English, French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese). You may download the whole 56 pages newsletter from the Boscolink.

In his message, the Past Pupils Confederation President, Mr Michal Hort shares:

   “It is again the blessed time of the new volume of the EX ALLIEVI Newsflash. This online magazine is growing in volume and quality constantly for already a few years. I am happy and thankful for this. At the same time, I see a parallel with our association where I can see qualitative and quantitative growth during the recent few years. EX ALLIEVI Newsflash is an example full of examples of how this growth is done. Many inspirative stories and projects have been discovered and shared from all around the world. Every new issue is bringing new surprises and motivation.

… and one of the best news from the last volume of EX ALLIEVI Newsflash for me personally is the appointment of the new world delegate for Past Pupils and Friends of Don Bosco by Rector Major. The new delegate is a coadjutor from Vietnam and his name is Brother Dominic Nguyen Duc Nam SDB. He is going to serve as a delegate for Salesian Cooperators at the same time as well. Let u spray for him and his challenging vocation. May Don Bosco and Mary Help of Christians will help him and take care of him. Welcome Br. Dominic!

   The needs of today’s world, problems, and challenges we face today are huge and sometimes overwhelming. I am sure that the potential we have as a group of Past Pupils and which has each one of us is much bigger. Let us search for that potential together also on the following pages. “

Indeed in the following 50 pages of this 39th Issue of the NEWSFLASH you may find variety of solidarity action during the pandemic or 150th anniversary of Don Bosco Past Pupils celebration from all 5 continents: from PNG, Italy, Argentina, Slovakia, Haiti, Brazile, Philippines, Timor Leste, Hong Kong, India, Uruguay, Guatemala, Thailand, Laos, Israel, Panama, Slovenia, South Korea – South Sudan).

While we congratulate the editor-in-chief, Pier Luigi Lazzarini and his large team of translators and contributors, we wish this wonderful tool of communication in the Salesian family would reach more and more Don Bosco Past pupils and Friends of Don Bosco!
