We are Daughters of Mary Help of Christians, popularly known as Salesian Sisters of Don Bosco, founded by Don Bosco in 1872 as a living monument of his gratitude to Mary, the Mother of God whom we honour as our mother, teacher and guide… We belong to a vast movement known as Salesian Family.
Our Institute is the fruit of a love that was born of the great heart of Don Bosco and of the simple and creative fidelity of Mary Mazzarello.
The Salesian sisters continue to keep alive the flame of this love lit in every continent. They share Christ's mission in the Church especially through Christian education in the style of the Preventive system – a system of loving kindness, drawn from the heart of Christ Himself.
Welcome to 2020 – God has blessed us with the gift of New Year 2020 with Mary, the Mother of God, who accompanied the journey of the apostles and our journey towards GC XXIV,of our Congregation which has its theme, “Do whatever he tells you” (Jn 2:5). Communities that generate life in the heart of contemporaneity
As the congregation celebrates its 150th anniversary of the foundation of our Institute that rose in Mornese on August 5, 1872 it is the heart’s need to thank God for the marvelous holiness and of grace that have happened in our history up to now. At the same time, it is an appeal to decisively renew our fidelity to Jesus and our missionary daring so that our Religious Family may continue to be in the Church and in the World, as a sign of love and hope for many young people. We understand how significant and fruitful it is in the three years that prepare us for this jubilee, to make a journey together of discernment, of prayer, of vital renewal and of share joy. Certainly new energies of life and vocational fruitfulness will come to the Institute. The theme was introduced to all the members of the congregation and it called everyone to have a serious reflection and study on the consecrated life and mission among the young, poor and the fragile people, migrants, women and girls in need, where everyone can find attention, care, affection and the chance to look to the future with hope.
