SALESIAN LAY MISSIONERS
Since the official inception of the Salesian Society by St. John Bosco in 1859, the Salesians have focused their time and effort in working with poor and abandoned youth - and not simply taking care of them but teaching them to take care of themselves. Don Bosco knew from the beginning that the laity would play a vital role in the Salesian ministry and even said, “Let it be a lay institution.” His mission was clear and simple: to be a friend - a friend to kids who were poor, kids abandoned, kids at risk - and, in so doing, to be a friend to Christ. 914.633.8344
