WE ARE SALESIANS

The Spirit of Saint John Bosco

LIVING THE SALESIAN CHARISM

The Salesians are a family of men and women founded in 1859 by an Italian Catholic priest, St. John Bosco, commonly referred to as "Don" Bosco.

Since then his society has been known as the Salesians of Don Bosco, whose mission is making each Salesian school, parish, youth center or other work a home where young people are welcome, a school where they learn important life lessons, a parish where they gather to grow in faith, and a playground where friendships are built.
 

SALESIAN PRESENCE ON CAMPUS

With 14 priests and brothers in residence, the Salesians are ever-present in they daily lives of our students.  They take on many roles as teachers, club moderators, coaches, and spiritual guides.

They assist on mission trips, run retreats, help organize our fund raisers n cheer on our students at sporting events, academic exhibitions and arts performances.
“St. John Bosco firmly believed that God has a special affection
and purpose for each young person. As his spiritual sons, we
Salesian priests and brothers dedicate our lives to journeying with
young people to assist them in growing into who God made them
to be and discovering their mission and purpose in life.”
