About Us

As Brothers of the Christian Schools, we are passionate about our mission of providing a human and Christian education to the young, especially those on the margins.

Founded over 300 years ago by Saint John Baptist de La Salle, who in seeing a need and being moved to respond, began a new form of religious life, a Gospel-centered community of men committed to responding to the educational and spiritual needs of young people in his day.

“The Brothers are convinced that their fraternity, demonstrated in community and educational ministry, as lay religious, is a prophetic sign for the Church and for the world” – Rule of the Brothers

Today the Lasallian charism and mission continues today in 79 countries, serving one million young people each year. As Brothers of the Christian Schools (FSC – Fratres Scholarum Christianarum) we are also known as De La Salle Christian Brothers. Our community is 3,500 Brothers internationally.

Together in community, as Brothers, we live out the Gospel and our Lasallian charism through the ministry of education.

You are invited to learn more about our community and discern with us your purpose, passion and God’s call in your life.
