Be a Part of the Mission!
In 96 countries around the world, the Salesian Sisters are giving their hearts to the mission that St. John Bosco entrusted to them - the care of the young. Join us in this mission today! #GivingTuesday is a global movement in which local communities come together to help support organizations that are already making an impact in the world. Read about the ways in which you too can get involved!
Donating to the Most Urgent Needs will allow funds to be allocated where they are needed the most! This flexibility allows the Sisters to expand their ministry where the need is greater and to fill in the gaps where fundraising does not meet the expenses. The Salesian Sisters believe in being good stewards and continue to consult their Advisory Council so that funds are used according to the Mission. Donate now!
When our Sisters retire, most will go to live at the Provincial House in San Antonio, TX, while others continue to live in religious communities with other Salesian Sisters across the Western Province. This fund will go to support those Sisters who no longer earn an income and depend on the Retirement Fund to provide for their needs. Give back to those that faithfully served by clicking below!
Our joyful charism continues to attract young ladies to the call of the Lord. Through discernment events and accompaniment led by the Sisters, women are empowered to take the next step with courage. Once a young lady has entered religious life, the Salesian Sisters will support her during her many years of formation, which averages about $12,000 per year per person. Help us to encourage more vocations!
Our ministries lead us to where youth are present. Our Sisters travel in the summer to schools and parishes to bring joyful and meaningful summer camp experiences to the young people that God has entrusted to us. Year-round, the Sisters bring oratories (a place to learn, that feels like a home, where youth can have fun, that is centered on God) to youth and young adults through retreats, conferences, and other events.
The Office of Mission Advancement helps to spread our Salesian mission with the wider community through social media and communications. Targeted fundraising efforts led by office personnel help to ensure that the Salesian Sisters are able to continue to work effectively with the young, especially the poor, and women at risk. The Office of Mission Advancement works closely with an Advisory Council, enabling the Salesian Sisters to reach out further towards the peripheries.
