Hajja Salesjana April June 2018

The logo above shows a simple house frame and a simplified form of three persons embracing each other. The logo intends to portray the image that the Salesian experience is a home that welcomes and invites youth to a journey together. The words Salesians Don Bosco recall the SDB nomenclature used after the name of Salesian Fathers and Brothers. The coat of arms of the Salesian Congregation shows the shining star, the large anchor, the heart on fire symbolizing faith, hope and charity; the figure of St. Francis de Sales recalling the Patron of the Society; the small wood in the lower part reminds us of the Founder (Bosco) the high mountains signify the heights of perfection towards which members strive; the interwoven palm and laurel that enfold the shield either side are emblematic of the prize reserved for a sacrificial and virtuous life. The motto Da mihi animas, caetera tolle (give me souls, take the rest) expresses every Salesian’s ideal.
