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.

Celebrating Sts Peter and Paul

Sts Peter and Paul, whose solemnity we celebrate today, are truly realistic models for all of us, and demonstrate the loving mercy of God towards each one of us: Peter, who despite his all too human ability to say and do the wrong thing, was rewarded with enormous trust from Jesus when he chose him to lead the fledgling Church; and Paul,  a persecutor of Christians to whom Jesus revealed himself, giving him a second chance which he used to to bring this revelation to others. Happy, prayerful feast!
