The Salesians of Don Bosco, priests, brothers and sisters, today work in the Holy Land supporting the poor, particularly in the social, intellectual and spiritual formation of young people.
They run technical and professional schools and an artistic centre giving training in olive wood carving, mother of pearl and ceramics. The Salesian Youth Centre is one of the most popular places in Bethlehem for young people to gather every evening for sports, music, theatre and film. The Salesian bakery continues to provide bread for the poorest families for about £1 a month - currently 620 families collect their bread each day.
