Our Salesian Family
The Salesian Co-operators are a public association of lay Catholics, men and women, who share in the spirit and mission of Don Bosco. They live their vocation to contribute to the salvation of the young within the context of their own life, work, family and local parish. Groups of Salesian Cooperators are often associated with a local Salesian school, parish or youth centre.
ADMA - The Association of the Devotees of Mary Help of Christians
A born organiser, Don Bosco did not leave the cult to Mary Help of Christians simply to spontaneous devotion. He gave it stability with an Association which took her name. First- hand witnesses saw in this institution one of the initiatives most dear to Don Bosco and the one with the widest impact after that of the two religious Congregations and the Association of the Cooperators (91).
The Salesian Past Pupils’ Association is an international movement of young people and adults, men and women, established by Confederal Statutes, with Local Branches attached to many Salesian works throughout the world. While all those who have attended Salesian schools, youth centres, hostels, camps or other works, or have been associated with Salesian parishes, are past pupils, by virtue of their Salesian education, the Association of Past Pupils of Don Bosco attracts those who wish to maintain their association with the Salesian Family in a particular manner.
Volunteers of Don Bosco
The Volunteers of Don Bosco is a Secular Institute for women. It was founded in Turin in 1917 by the young women who attended the Salesian Sisters Oratory at Valdocco. Today there are approximately 1,500 women who are members of the Volunteers of Don Bosco. They live the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, but, unlike members of a religious institute, do not live out their consecration in the world.
