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 63 Salesians of Don Bosco based in 6 Communities.

Last week, a group of parishioners, volunteers and helpers from St James’, Bootle, met for the first time. They discussed the meaning of Salesian vocation and how it is lived out in our own context. The theme of the session was “holiness”. Sue McDonald, Youth Ministry Animator for GBR, who is also a Salesian Cooperator, led the group beautifully in the session and animated the evening. Since the first meeting, a number of other people have expressed their interest in joining...
