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.

Br Ste started the evening with a simple prayer service recognising Mary as the mother of the church and helper of us all. Fr Tom gave us a reflective goodnight thought then we relaxed together with food and drink sharing stories and memories of events past and looking forward to events to come. During prayer we paused to remember Sr Cecily who returned home to the Father earlier in the day. We were also honoured to...
