Our Superiors

The Salesians of Sri Lanka work as a Religious Congregation of the Holy Catholic Church to fulfil the needs of the young and the ordinary people. The Salesian Family work in blissful obedient collaboration with the Local Community Rectors, the Provincial Superior of Sri Lanka, the Rector Major of the Global Salesian Congregation and the Shepherd of the Universal Church – His Holiness. We listen to the voice of our Superior-shepherds who guide us according to the wish of the Almighty.

The society of St. Francis de Sales or Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB), is a religious Congregation founded by St. John Bosco in 1859 in Turin, Italy for the purpose of helping, educating and training poor boys. To date, services of the Salesians have spread to 131 countries in the world. In Sri Lanka, the very first Don Bosco Centre was established in 1956 at Negombo. The Salesians of Don Bosco have, to date established 18 centres in different parts of the country.
