Don Bosco lived a pastoral experience in his first Oratory in Valdocco which serves as a model for any of our presences. Therefore, all Salesian settings and initiatives are for our youngsters:

a HOME that welcomes

a PARISH that evangelises

a SCHOOL that prepares them for life

a PLAYGROUND where friends can meet and enjoy themselves

In accordance with Don Bosco’s wishes, we are sent to the young, especially to the poorest among them. Our mission is founded on the above criteria, which put us in the position to fight against material, spiritual, cultural and relational poverty.

As we carry out our mission today, the Valdocco experience is the everlasting criterion for discernment and renewal in all our activities and works.
