SALESIAN CONVENT & CHURCH

SALESIAN CONVENT & CHURCH

Salesian Convent Church - The Salesians of Don Bosco came to Bethlehem in 1891 after a call from Fr. Antonio Belloni, a priest of the Latin Patriarchate, who in 1863 founded a “Catholic Orphanage” for boys. They established a convent dedicated to “the Sacred Heart of Jesus” and a Technical School that aimed to educate the orphans for professions.

In 2005, The Salesian Artistic Center was established, a vocational and professional training center that serves youth across all community sectors. Visitors can observe young artisans creating olive wood, ceramic, and mother of pearl souvenirs.
