The Winter edition of the Australian Salesian Bulletin cries out for peace in a world seemingly stuck in a never-ending winter. However, we are reminded that only through hope, laughter and joy will we be able to move forward, as Teaghan so aptly puts it in her column. Updates from the Salesian Misisons effort for the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, as well as a brilliant article about Ms Tasileta, a wonderful employee of the DBTC in Samoa. We also feature two wonderful lives that were lived well, luminaries of the Australia-Pacific Province. Regular columns are included, such as reflections from the Rector Major and the (new!) Mother general, the green pages and news from around the Australia-Pacific province.
