Salesian Bulletin

$

The Australian Salesian Bulletin was first published in 1955. Today it is issued 4 times a year with a run of 12,000 copies.

It is distributed free to individuals, families, bishops, parishes and schools throughout Australia, New Zealand the Pacific. The purpose of the Salesian Bulletin, according to the mind of St John Bosco, is to be informational and formational. It endeavours to keep its readers abreast of the main events in the Church and the Congregation on the local and worldwide level with particular attention to the overseas missions. The Australian Salesian Bulletin maintains a focus on youth issues.

The Salesian Bulletin was first published by St John Bosco in 1877. It is now published in 54 different national editions throughout the world, in a total of 30 languages. Each national edition is the agency of the Rector Major for the information and formation of the Salesian Family especially for those involved with the education and formation of youth. As such it follows the editorial and publication guidelines as formulated by the Rector Major and Council.

Staff: All members of the editorial committee are engaged in full time activities apart from the Bulletin and give their services on a voluntary basis. Distributed freely, it depends on donations to cover costs of production and mailing. By soliciting support for the overseas Missions it raises over a million dollars each year. These donations are forwarded to various mission offices.

The Salesians of Don Bosco, officially known as The Society of St. Francis de Sales, are an international organisation of Catholic priests and brothers dedicated to the service of the young, especially the disadvantaged and marginalised.

The Salesian Family is a worldwide movement of people committed to the service of the young. It consists of over 400,000 people who are part of 30 different organisations aligned to Don Bosco.
