Description:

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 founded a convent dedicated to “the Sacred Heart of Jesus” and a Technical School that aimed to educate the orphans for professions.

There followed in 2005 the establishment of the Salesian Artistic Center, a vocational and professional training center that serves youth across all sectors of the community. Visitors can observe young artisans creating olive wood, ceramic, and mother of pearl souvenirs.
