Salesians of Don Bosco in Kuwait


THE INDIAN ENGLISH ACADEMY SCHOOL IN THE STATE OF KUWAIT

Brief History of the Salesian Congregation

THE SALESIANS

The Salesians are a worldwide organization founded by St. John Bosco, the third largest Catholic religious order in the world! Don Bosco gathered a number of priests and lay people together to found a religious congregation in the Catholic Church. He called this congregation the Salesian Society. It was named after St. Francis de Sales who was known for his kind and gentle manner, a trait which Don Bosco wanted his Salesians to acquire. He also chose Mary, Help of Christans, as the patroness of the Salesian Society.

THE SALESIAN FAMILY

The educational work of Don Bosco is carried on today by an organization linked by philosophy and purpose to a worldwide network called the Salesian Family. The Salesian Society (SDB), is a community of priests and brothers with religious vows. The Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (FMA), also known as the Salesian Sisters, is a similar institute for women. Lay persons who participate in the Salesian work from their homes or places of business are known as Salesian Co-operators. A secular Institute of men and women with religious vows who live in their homes without the outward signs of consecrated life are known as the Don Bosco Volunteers. The Past-Pupils Association consists of students who have been members of Salesian Institutions; they also form part of the Salesian Family.

As pioneers in the field of education of the youth, the Salesians can be found worldwide in many different initiatives on behalf of young people: schools, oratories, youth centers, technical and professional training centers, parishes, foreign missions, and activities in the realm of mass media and social communications.

The Salesians have started a school in the State of Kuwait since April 2002 under the title, "THE INDIAN ENGLISH ACADEMY SCHOOL".

Salesian Co-operators: A Special Call

SALESIAN CO-OPERATORS: A SPECIAL CALL TO JOIN THE SALESIAN FAMILY

DON BOSCO HAS SAID ...
The Association of the Salesian Co-operators
is the soul of the Congregation."

HISTORY

The Salesian Co-operators were the first helpers of Don Bosco since 1841. In fact, it is from their ranks that Don Bosco formed the first group of religious members. The Association was approved by Pope Pius IX on 9th May 1876.

Today the Salesian Co-operators are a bunch of the Salesian family and share in the charism and mission of the Salesian Family at the service of the young particularly the poor and marginalized youth in society.

ORGANISATION

Catholics above the age of 16 may be enrolled as Salesian Co-operators, provided they feel the call to Christian witness by their own lives and lead young people to the love of Jesus Christ following the teachings and example of Don Bosco.

A probationary period of formation (at least one year), helps the candidates to discern their call, by knowing the regulations, understanding the Salesian spirit and involving themselves in youth apostolate. The candidates are then invited to make "The Promise" which entitles them to be members of the Association of Salesian Co-operators.
