Fr. General finished the 3rd and last stage of the Canonical Visit to Bethany Province, approaching the two Piarist presences in Indonesia: Yogyakarta and Atambua. As usual, he talked personally with all candidates (10), postulants (8), Pre-novices (8) and Juniors being in Indonesia (12), as well as with the religious of solemn vows and people that help us as volunteers. He had meetings with each of the groups and meetings with each of the communities.
In Atambua he met also with the diocesan Bishop (Bishop Dominikus Saku) and he was able to attend the ordination to the diaconate of Didimus Supardi Sch. P., which was held in the Cathedral of Atambua.
He had also time to know the Asrhama Calasanz, talking with the boys who live at our boarding school, and have dinner with them.
Piarist life and mission are growing in Indonesia, and we are already thinking about a foundation in Timor Leste. Thanks to all the Piarists of Indonesia and Timor-Leste for their work and courage, and in particular to Bethany Province for its accompaniment to this hopeful Foundation of the Order, as well as to Itaka-Escolapios for their support and commitment.
