The Salesian Mission holds an important role in Sierra Leone.
The Sierra Leone Salesian Mission began from humble beginnings of early missionaries in 1986. Since then, much progress has been made at the Sierra Leone Salesian Mission in support to the people of Lungi village and surrounding areas.
Original missionaries came from around the world. Now local priests graduate from seminary and run the central mission which includes a high school, junior high, primary school and nursery providing education to 3,000 students.
Managing a thriving parish church and youth center keeps thing humming from morning to night, in addition to the many outlying areas.
In this season of giving, La Madre de los Pobres recently donated a slightly used Toyota SUV to ease and extend the priests’ reach to bring the word of God and education to these outstations.
We are grateful for the assistance we are able to contribute to a community that is focused on re-building toward a future of hope.
