At the age of nine Don Bosco had a dream in which he was encouraged to reach out to the young with kindness and gentleness. This dream is considered extremely formative to his future work among the young.

After struggling to obtain an education so that he could follow the desire of his heart and enter the seminary, Don Bosco soon found himself reaching out to the young and the poor of Turin. He felt that he could identify with them, to a certain extent, because of the poverty and struggles of his own childhood. He soon understood that his life work would be among them.

He felt that he could identify with them, to a certain extent, because of the poverty and struggles of his own childhood. He soon understood that his life work would be among them.

As Don Bosco’s work of caring for poor and abandoned boys grew, he saw the need for a religious congregation of women to fulfill the same dream for young girls.

St Mary Mazzarello was born on May 9, 1837 at Mornese in the Alessandria region of Italy.

Her childhood, though not as financially troubled as Don Bosco’s, was still marked by poverty and difficulty in obtaining an education. In some regards it was even harder for Mary to make a future for herself as women were not expected to do more than be mothers and homemakers.

SALESIAN Charism

"Da Mihi Animas, Caetera Tolle!" “ Give me Souls, take away the rest!”

The Preventive System Reason Religion Loving-Kindness

The Oratory Model Home School Playground Church

Education is a matter of the heart. Only God is the TRUE teacher and we need to ask Him for the keys.
