Our Unique Mission
Salesians minister to young people primarily those who are poorer, abandoned and marginalised through schools, technical training centres, tertiary institutions, parishes, youth centres and oratories, retreat centres, shelter for street children, wherever young people can be found. Don Bosco wanted his Salesians to be signs and bearers of God's love for the young. Using all of their energy and creativity they seek to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ by educating and evangelizing them.
Alongside lay mission partners the community of consecrated Salesians is present as the animating nucleus of our educative mission through pastoral and educative works. This is our way of being Church in a particular place, distinguished by the Salesian charism.
Don Bosco’s pedagogy insists on the authentic religious purpose of life in an educational process oriented towards Christ and enlightened by his message. The educative concern is to foster the growth of the person in all aspects.
The primary task of Salesian ministry to young people is to foster the holistic development of the young using many effective tools and programs.
The Salesian charism is a participation in the universal mission of the Church that is missionary by its very nature. Don Bosco wanted his Congregation to have a special attention for those who have not yet heard the Gospel, marginalised, the young who are poorest and abandoned.
