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.

Feast of Blessed Eusebia Palomino Yenes

She worked as a servant to a wealthy family, and later became a nanny at an orphanage. Her call to religious life led her to become a lay assistant to the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (the Salesian Sisters), where her spiritual gifts were recognised, and she entered the novitiate. In the early 1930s, as the Church was menaced by anti-Catholic forces in Spain,...
