Don Bosco Formation Center

Lawaan III, Talisay City, 6045 Cebu

The Don Bosco Formation Center is a community for the human maturing of the young person, his intellectual preparation and the deepening of his search for his calling. It is a time of dialogue between God, whose initiative calls him and leads him forward, and his own freedom as he gradually assumes responsibility for his own formation where the candidate gradually gets to know the Society, and the Society in turn can evaluate his suitability for Salesian life.
