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.

Since the first meeting, a number...

New book explores prayer with the young

  In Salesian Spiritual Direction: Accompaniment and Prayer, launched this week by Don Bosco Publications, editors Fabio Attard SDB and Miguel García SDB  continue the journey begun by their earlier book, Spiritual Accompaniment: An Educational and Spiritual Journey with Young People in the Way of Don Bosco.   In the formation of young people, prayer is not optional; it is fundamental in the process of faith and personal growth. Without prayer, our educational and pastoral processes will never reach the level of depth and integrity that our young people deserve and need. This book is a useful tool for those who are called to guide in...
