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.

On 22nd January, we celebrate the feast of Blessed Laura Vicuña, who is the patron of abuse victims. She was born in Chile in 1891, and died on 22nd January, 1904. After her father died, Laura's mother took her to Argentina, where she was educated by the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians. She felt a call to religious life from an early age, dedicatting herself to God while she was still too young to follow her vocation to join the Salesian Sisters.
