The Oratory Model

Each development of Don Bosco’s work, from the original oratory to the school and the missions, was for the purpose of “education,” and at each stage, he applied his system of prevention and the oratory model in a manner appropriate to setting up a suitable educative environment.

The Oratory Model is based on the experience of the Home, School, Church and Playground. In everything Don Bosco sought to make these elements alive.
