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.

Her feast on 24th May is therefore a very special day in the Salesian Family’s calendar.

They spend hours of their time each year reading and writing reports, attending training in specific areas, attending meetings and visiting school. So, how does that affect you? Lillian Berry, a former teacher who is now Chair of Governors at a Bolton primary school, outlines the importance of the role, and urges more of us to take it on.
