Brs Joe and Greg talk about making their final professions


This Sunday, 16th July 2017,  in Battersea, Br Joseph Tran SDB and Br Gregory Echegwo SDB will make their final professions. In this third and final video, they talk about their feelings and commitment as they approach the moment they will say, "Now, God, we are giving you all," as Br Gregory explains.

Br Joe is from Vietnam, and Br Greg is from Nigeria. They are serving as missionaries in the UK as part of the Salesians of Don Bosco's Project Europe. We recently filmed a series of interviews with them about their missionary and vocational journeys.


We wish them every blessing and joy; please keep them both in prayer!


The Salesian Missions prayer intention for July is for Salesians in Europe. Please join us in praying: 


"That Project Europe, a missionary project of the Congregation, may bear abundant fruit.

During his historic pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela (1982) Saint John Paul II said: “I address to you, old Europe, a cry full of love: Return to yourself, be yourself! Rediscover your origins. Relive your roots”. Project Europe of the Salesians of Don Bosco is gradually moving ahead on the road of this prophetic and missionary appeal. We pray that this journey may be consolidated and become fruitful, so that the Salesian communities in Europe may be renewed in the joy of the Salesian charism and mutual acceptance of the confreres." Cagliero 11, July 2017
