Salesian Bulletin

Australia - Pacific Province

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.

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.


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 Salesian Bulletin's aim is as much as possible to publicize our activities and show them as they really are.
By winning popular good will for our works we shall obtain people's help.
In skillfully presenting our needs we can also suggest varied ways of supporting our undertakings.
This magazine will be the mainstay of all our enterprises; if it fails, they fail with it.
We have to work to get as many readers as possible by spreading it far and wide and free of charge
