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.

Happy feast of St Leonard Murialdo!

  On 18th May, we celebrate the feast of St Leonard Murialdo, who  was asked by Don Bosco to run the St Aloysius oratory. He later founded the Society of St Joseph of Turin, working with poor and abandoned boys in oratories and schools, where he used Don Bosco's approach of loving kindness. He was supportive of working people, and was an early advocate for an 8-hour working day.   Read more about his life
