Mission Office

1We are the Salesians of Don Bosco of the Scared Heart Province which is made up of the states of Kerala and Karnataka with our Provincial House and Mission Office in Bangalore. Our Mission Office was founded on 19 th March, 1979. Today, Fr. Shalbin Kalanchery Paul, as Mission Procurator, channels his dedicated dynamism in collaborating and continuing to enhance the work begun by his predecessors.

The primary purpose of our Salesian Mission Office is fourfold:

To build awareness of the Salesians of St. John Bosco, the second largest order in the Catholic Church and to promote the principles of St. John Bosco to build a world where love, justice and equality prevail.

To commit ourselves to the integral and inclusive development of youth, especially the poor, marginalized and other disadvantaged sections of society.

To be an intercessor and intervene, through prayer, for the needs of others. This can be done either by sending us your requests/intentions which will be placed in the petition box in our chapel where we celebrate the Holy Mass daily, or through Mass intentions. We have more than 235 priests to celebrate Masses for you. Your Mass offerings are also a great source of support for our many works to the marginalized.

To raise funds that support the projects and works for the poor and also for the formation of Salesian priests, brothers and novices. The Salesians have no known source of income. They trust and depend entirely on God’s Providence through the compassion and generosity of friends, benefactors and organizations. You can be our hands in reaching out to the abandoned, forgotten and destitute children and youth of our society.
