Our Vision and Mission
A Religious Family born from the heart of St. John Bosco and the creative fidelity of St. Mary Domenica Mazzarello.
We are the largest Congregation of religious women with over 11,000 Sisters serving in 98 countries. Founded in 1872 by St. John Bosco and St. Mary Mazzarello, the Salesian Sisters are dedicated to reaching the youth for Christ. The Salesian Sisters arrived in South Africa in 1961; in Lesotho, in 1983 and in Zambia in 1984. The new Province of Our Lady of Peace in Southern Africa was created in 1995 with 45 sisters. We have grown since then to 72 sisters.
