The Salesians are Roman Catholic Fathers, Brothers who consecrated their life to God in order to follow the Christ. Their life is entirely devoted to God threw prayer and mission. As Saint John Bosco, an Italian Priest who dedicated his entire life to the welfare of poor youth, they want to show the Lord’s Love to young people, to help the poorest of the poor. They are continuing to help the children in the same way as did Saint John Bosco with one thing in mind : their happiness.
The Salesian community was created on the 18th of December 1841 when Don Bosco invited several young people to help him. Together they took in charge poor young people of Torino and created the Society of Saint Francis de Sales, known Salesians of Don Bosco.
