In 1815, on August 16, the father and friend of youth John Bosco was born. At the age of nine John had a mysterious dream, which led him to his future mission that he decided to become a priest and commit his life for the welfare of young people.
To complete his education John had to do his share work on the family farm and study in the evening. John entered the seminary and was ordained a priest on June 5,1841 and from then on he was known as Don Bosco(Father Bosco). In 1853 two small workshops had been opened, a Shoemakers’ and the other a Tailors for teaching the unemployed youngsters to earn an honest livelihood.
In December 1859 these young people were formed into a simple society. In May 1862 they took the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience thus forming a true religious congregation. In 1869 this community of men was officially recognized by “Salesians” after St. Francis de Sales. Don Bosco called his method of education the “Preventive system”, based on Reason, Religion and Kindness. Don Bosco also founded a Congregation of religious nuns known as the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians.
Don Bosco died on January 31, 1888 at the age of seventy three. He was declared a saint on April 1934. His feast day is celebrated on January 31 every year.
The tiny seed planted by Don Bosco has now grown into a mighty tree cutting across caste, creed, cultures and languages. The Don Bosco concern has become an international movement contributing to peace and universal brotherhood in over 134 countries. Salesians of Don Bosco came to India in 1906. Today we work in all the states in India through our various institutions.
