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 8th December 1841, the recently ordained Fr John Bosco was preparing to say Mass, when he came across a frightened, ragged boy who had been sheltering in the church. Don Bosco talked to him gently, and learnt about his hard life and lack of education - both spiritual and academic. He taught the youngster the Hail Mary, and assured him of a welcome in future, asking him to bring his friends next week.
