We, the Salesians of Don Bosco, are an international organization of Catholic priests and brothers dedicated to the service of the young, especially the disadvantaged and marginalized. We are faithful to Don Bosco’s Preventive System of “reason, religion and loving-kindness” and strive to create environments characterized by a sense of belonging (home), a spirit of faith (parish), dynamic learning (school) and engaged social interaction (playground).
We were founded in the mid-1800s by St. John Bosco, an Italian saint–educator. There are 14114 Salesians of Don Bosco around the world and they are present in 134 countries in all six continents. Our works can be grouped into Regions, Provinces and local Presences. All of these, including our own Province of the Middle East (MOR), belong to the Salesian Family. The Salesian Family is a wider movement than the religious institution itself and includes several groups of people (including lay people) committed to the service of the young.
By walking with young people you take part in this adventure!
