Who is St John Bosco
St John Bosco is remembered as a man who dedicated his life to the service of abandoned young people. Over 150 years ago he challenged the way young people were treated in the desperate poverty that existed at that time in the city of Turin, Italy.
John Bosco created an order in the Catholic Church, called the Salesians. They were founded in the poverty of a city we consider to be one of the most prosperous in the world today.

Don Bosco Publications
Don Bosco Publications is a small publishing house operated by the Salesians of Don Bosco UK. Our growing catalogue includes books on Salesian spirituality, biographies of saints, prayer books, handbooks for chaplains and teachers, Gospel commentaries, and a range of books for children. We also stock religious medals, keyrings and prayer cards.
We publish Don Bosco Today, a free magazine issued three times a year to subscribers, and available to read on our website.
Don Bosco speaks to:
Give timely advice. A fatherly word in private is worth much more than reproach.
Sweeten correction with comfort. Correction at times brings about anxiety and fear. A word of comfort can easily offset this. A person who forgets and helps the culprit to forget is a true educator.
It is a mistake to skirt difficulties or to skip what you don't understand and go on to something else. Tackle the obstacle until you have overcome it.
You must behave so as to edify all who see you; you must try to help others not only by advice but mostly by example.
