Who we are?

The Engadine Parish is a faith community growing with Christ and His Church, building the Kingdom of God, in the Salesian Charism.

The Charism of St John Bosco calls us to create a community that is:

  • a home that welcomes
  • a parish that evangelises
  • a community that prepares for life
  • a playground where friends can meet and share.

Current Project

Don Bosco Co-educational High School and Vocational Centre in Salelologa, Samoa provides education and training to disadvantaged local youth. Sustaining the school has been a challenge as the parents of students are, in the main, subsistence farmers many of whom struggle to pay school fees. Your support is welcomed to continue providing the job skills needed, to bring hope to students, so they can secure employment after graduation within local industry.  

How we Help?

We have been a Salesian Parish since we were established in January 1951.  It is through gratitude to the Salesians for helping to build our parish community, that we are now in a position to help the growth of other Salesian Parishes and Projects. We raise funds to help assist Salesian Projects in developing countries to provide aid and assistance to the most marginalised.

The Salesians of Don Bosco support the vocational teaching of underprivileged young women, men, boys and girls, in order that they find employment and become self-sufficient contributing members of their nation.

Salesian works include schools (academic, technical, agricultural), school luncheon programs, orphanages, workshops for unemployed youth, emergency programs, community help groups, accommodation for street children, running dispensaries and providing assistance to the disadvantaged.

With a presence in most countries of the developing world, the Salesians or Don Bosco are well placed to make responses that are quick, compassionate and generous to those in need during emergencies such as natural disasters, war or violence.
