The Salesians?

The Salesians of Don Bosco are an international Roman Catholic Religious Order dedicated to be signs and bearers of the love of God for young people, especially those who are disadvantaged.

The Salesian Family (made up of priests, Brothers and Sisters as well as others, such as volunteers and past pupils), attempts to continue the work of its founder, St. John Bosco, a priest who served the young and poor. Today the Salesians have projects such as schools, youth centres, homes for street children and vocational training centres around the world.
