The Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (aka Salesian Sisters) look up to Mary Help of Christians and St. Mary Mazzarello in living our active-religious vocation in our community. OUR mission is to be WITH and FOR young people in their quest for happiness, love, and joyful service to God and one another.
