For the Brother, the ministry of education is an extension of the Gospel. Through prayer and work, he unfolds the salvation of young men and women and shapes his own relationship to God. His life is a life of study, of teaching, of personal and community prayer, and of real community with his brothers and with all those whom he encounters within a Lasallian school or agency.
It’s all about a certain kind of education that St. John Baptist de La Salle brought to life in the late 17th century and turned into an educational movement that today reaches beyond national borders, sectarian differences, and negative educational expectations.
Walk onto any campus, talk with any student or teacher, and you will be touched by spirit of faith and zeal that make us life-long educators.
