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.

Talented Brothers create beautiful space…

  The celebration of today's special feast calls for beautiful spaces, and our Province is fortunate in having talented young Brothers who use their gifts in honour of Our Lady.   At Chertsey, Br Mateusz prepared the St Francis de Sales chapel at Salesian School to provide a lovely focus for prayer and contemplation, and in Bolton, Br Po Tak created a banner in the community dining room as a centrepiece for the festivities.
