“If you want peace, work for justice.” — Pope Paul VI
Lasallian Youth Summer Assembly 2017
July 16-21, 2017
La Salle University, Philadelphia, PA
Join us for the 2017 Lasallian Youth Assembly, proudly returning to Philadelphia with La Salle University serving as host.
Begins Sunday July 16 at 3:00pm and the assembly ends 11:00am Friday July 21.
The Roman Catholic tradition, as well as the larger Christian tradition as a whole, has a history of charitable actions, meeting the expectations of Jesus found in Matthew 25:35-36: “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.”
Lasallians have been active in their communities with acts of charity such as these for as long as they’ve been around, caring for those that cannot care for themselves, loving those that were not loved by the greater society. For as long as there has been church there has been charity. But as the Church discovered a little over a century ago, the Gospel message requires more than just charity: it requires social justice. Whereas charity seeks to alleviate the symptoms of societal problems, i.e. feeding those that are hungry, social justice seeks to understand and eliminate the causes of societal problems. During our week of faith, service and community, we will serve God’s children and we will, together and by association, learn about how we as Lasallians can respond to the “call for justice.” In our lives…in our school…in our community…in our nation…in our world.
