Sister Mary Link, FMA, is reviving the Salesian Cooperators program at Corpus Christi Church, San Francisco, after decades of inactivity. She heads the English-speaking group of twenty-two candidates. Fr. Jesse Montes, SDB, is forming the seventeen candidates in the Spanish-speaking group. Recently, Fr. Jesse held a Zoom meeting, enriched with the presence of Elizabeth Gamarra, our new Salesian Family delegate. Alex Centeno, a computer expert, arranged the entire operation. He has also created a site in WhatsApp, Cooperadores Salesianos. Sr. Mary and Fr. Jesse have attended meetings in preparation for this venture, attending the meeting in Haverstraw, N.Y., and the various Zoom meetings these past months.
Of interest, Mrs. Isabel Pinilla, already a cooperator, was in the association led by Fr. Albert Negri, SDB, of fond memory. She was elated to renew her ties with our Salesian family.
