Welcome to the Salesians of Don Bosco in Great Britain

The Salesians of Don Bosco are a religious congregation of Brothers and Priests . We were founded in 1859 by Saint John Bosco. Don Bosco’s mission was clear and simple: to be a friend to young people who were poor, abandoned or at risk, and in so doing to be a friend to Christ. Wherever the Salesians work, our mission is the same, but its expression changes to suit the particular context. So you will find Salesians in schools of all kinds, youth clubs, in homes for homeless or abandoned children; working with street children; missionaries; chaplains in schools, colleges and universities and in parish work. There are currently almost 16,000 members (priests and brothers) in the congregation, working in 131 countries around the world. Currently in the British Province there are 69 Salesians of Don Bosco based in 8 Communities.

A new Salesian project aims to equip young adults with the skills they need to make important decisions in a world that is increasingly filled with uncertainty and competing choices. Rooted in the Christian tradition of discernment, but open to young adults of all faiths and none, the Signposts programme has been created by Fr David O’Malley SDB , drawing on the Salesian experience in working with the young. “Young adults today face far more choices and uncertainties than their parents. Work, relationships and culture are all in a time of significant change, and the stability of long term work and family...
