Daughters of Mary Help of Christians

The Salesian Sisters of St. John Bosco, as they are popularly called, is a Religious Family born of the heart of St. John Bosco and the creative fidelity of St. Mary Domenica Mazzarello.
The story of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians begins with a group of young women, one of whom was St. Mary Domenica Mazzarello, who eventually became the Mother General of the New Congregation founded by St. John Bosco. 1872 was the year of the first profession of fifteen young women. The aim of the Congregation is to work with young girls, particularly with the poor and disadvantaged.
