New Delhi, Sep. 3. The online meeting of the Don Bosco South Asia Province Coordinators of the 'Education to the Faith' Dimension was organized by Father Gilbert Choondal, South Asia Education to the Faith Dimension Coordinator on 31 August 2020.
Mumbai Salesians' Provincial Father Savio Silveira, Provincial responsible for the South Asia Education to the Faith dimension, initiated the meeting by briefing the participants on the vision of the Congregation regarding this dimension with a special focus on GC 28. He reminded the members of the importance of addressing this ministry of educating to the faith in today's context of spiritual passivity and modern media revolution especially in this time of the pandemic. He proposed the 'Catechesis of Hope' given by Pope Francis that could be disseminated in multiple ways. Father Choondal presented a short report of the Dimension and proposed a few suggestions.

In the light of these two presentations, an open discussion was held among the members and the following proposals were put forth:
1. In this year of Laudato Si', the monthly online catechetical programme on he tLaudato Si' Year initiated by Nitika Catechetical Centre, Kolkatta from August will be continued. The Coordinators were encouraged to contribute by way of resources or concepts for this monthly programme via YouTube.
2. The 'Catechesis of Hope' consisting of 38 talks from the Wednesday Angelus of Pope Francis from 2016 to 2017 will be disseminated in ways and means proposed by the participants during the days of the pandemic.
3. To train the Catholic Teachers & Catechists of the parishes, a one-day animation programme will be organised at the province level.
4. Collate and collect Catechetical resources available on a variety of topics into one portal.
5. An online Laudato Si' Quiz for schools and parishes will be organized at the parish, school and regional level, in each province.
