As the Youth Ministry Team of the Salesian Province of St Thomas of Canterbury, we work to recognise and connect with the aspirations of the young, welcoming them – seeing our youth ministry not as a product, but as an experience of relationship – both within the formal and non-formal educative field. Our vision sees the young as ‘children of God’ deeply loved by Him, whoever and wherever they are.
The vision of our Province is that we present a dynamic and energetic youth ministry team with SDB leadership and membership; which develops a real partnership with co-workers; which has an impact on the local, national and international scene; and which provides formation programmes so that all who engage with us also experiences Salesian formation at some level.
They are a Roman Catholic Religious Order founded by St John Bosco – a priest who worked with the young and the poor. Today they have projects all around the world – including schools, homes for street children, parishes, youth centres, Retreat centres and training centres.
Our website exists to share news and stories of our Ministry, and we offer you a selection of stories and experiences – we invite you to browse the website for more information about specific areas of Salesian Youth Ministry, and please contact us and let us know what you think – or maybe where we can help you and your Ministry.
