DENA Family Together for Association Celebration and 10 Years of Mission

Philadelphia, PA – For the past ten years, the Brothers of the Christian Schools, along with their Lasallian Partners, have provided a human and Christian education to more than 14,000 students and their families as one geographic network: The District of Eastern North America (DENA).

Superior General, Brother Robert Schieler, FSC, leader of The Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, which sponsors ministries and other educational programs in over 80 countries worldwide, including DENA, facilitated the Association Celebration with his keynote presentation. Broadcasted from La Salle University, his alma mater, in his home town of Philadelphia, Br. Robert shared his perspectives on the current state of the global Lasallian mission, and how our Lasallian family continues to respond to the needs of young people with new ministries reaching out the poor, and collaborations with other religious orders to provide education to refugee children. Calling on all of DENA’s Lasallians to reflect on their vocation as part of this Jubilee Year, so designated by the Catholic Church, Br. Robert’s presentation rooted in the Gospel asked for our DENA family to explore how we can do more for marginalized young people.

From weeklong Christian service immersion trips to Montana, New York, Mississippi and New Jersey to the hours spent serving those at home, at school, at church and in the greater Washington, DC, community, our students truly “enter to learn and leave to serve.” #10DENA #livinglasallian ...

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2019

A day we celebrated the…

10th ANNIVERSARY OF DENA

ASSOCIATION ACROSS THE DISTRICT

PASSING OF OUR FOUNDER INTO ETERNAL LIFE,
ENTRUSTING THE MISSION TO THE BROTHERS IN 1719

An Exciting Day for All!

The DENA ASSOCIATION CELEBRATION was a wonderful opportunity for fellow DENA Lasallians to engage in reflection, connection and association. The day long celebration was hosted at locations throughout the district and included featured guest Superior General Brother Robert Schieler, FSC, along with breakout sessions, District-wide sharing and Q&A, and a DENA 10th anniversary cake.

Each of the Brothers, LVs, Benefacted and Affiliated Members of DENA, even if not formally connected to one of our ministries, took part in the events and festivities of this special day. One highlight was a live-streamed address by Superior General Brother Robert Schieler, FSC.
