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.

Salesian family spirit never fades

  Tony Galcius, a former Salesian who worked in England and South Africa during his ministry, describes a beautiful gathering of a branch of the extended Salesian Family.   On the vigil of Don Bosco's feast day, a group of men and women gathered in a house on the hill overlooking the city of Stoke. We had gathered, from various parts of the United Kingdom and Ireland, to celebrate Mass in honour of Don Bosco, who had had such a benign influence on our lives either directly or indirectly. All the men had been educated by the Salesians and all of them had...
