The Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB) are an international Roman Catholic Religious Order of men dedicated to be signs and bearers of the love of God for young people.
Founded by Saint John Bosco in Italy during the nineteenth century, the Salesians now number over 16000 Priests and Brothers, present in 128 different countries all over the world.
Wherever they work, the development of the young through education and evangelization is the focus of all their concern because they believe that their total dedication to the young is their best gift to humanity. Saint John Bosco said, "I have promised God that I would give of myself to my last breath for my poor boys."
In the Salesian province of Great Britain there are over 80 Salesians (Priests and Brothers) working from eight communities, with responsibility for schools, parishes, youth work and a retreat centre.
The Salesians collaborate with other members of the Salesian Family including the Salesian Sisters, Cooperators, Volunteers of Don Bosco and Past Pupils.
