About Us

We are the the Salesians of Don Bosco, officially known as the Salesian Society of St. Francis of Sales, a clerical religious institute of pontifical right dedicated to apostolic works especially for the needy and underprivileged youth.

We make ourselves present in the islands of Visayas and Mindanao as the Philippine South Province (FIS), part of a global network of Salesian presences that work together in apostolic and missionary activity at the service of young people. We work in youth education and technical training, in parish animation and catechesis, in centers for youth in need of special care and protection, and in fields and spaces where the young thrive and live.

We work together with the Salesian family, and act in the Church’s name in order to help build a more just, inclusive, and fraternal world in Christ.
