The PYD requested the Directors to follow the common directives from the Province desk, as well as to register the Local Youth Centre with DBYES. One of the problems highlighted by the PYD was that there was many in-fighting among the various youth centres, especially when they come together for football matches.
“So, the directors should animate them regarding the purpose and goal of sports in our oratory. The oratories should move from the traditional way of functioning to the signs of the times. Education, Vocational guidance & Social Action should be given the p
rime importance. The stability of the Oratories is fully depended on the continuity of the Salesian presence so, the young Salesians should be prepared for this kind of work and they should be placed for a minimum of three years for continuity and follow-up,” suggested the PYD.
There was a collective suggestion to start as many oratories as possible in our presences.
