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.

On Sunday 21 July, the Catholic community in Battersea will celebrate 150 years of Catholic worship in the Battersea Park area, with a special Mass at 11am on Sunday 21st July. The parish has also launched a new website in time for the celebrations. The little church of Our Lady, now served by the Salesians, was built in 1869 and ten years later, when a larger church was built to serve the growing community, it was retained as the Lady Chapel for the new church.
