Lasallians from across the District gather for discussions / prayers in Providence
4/2/2011 – Providence, RI – Christian Brothers and partnersconverged on the San Miguel School in Providence on the first Saturday in April for a day of Association. Hosted by the Rhode Island Lasallian Association Group (RILAG), Lasallians engaged in conversation and prayer, reflecting on their experiences, and the recent publication about association from the Institute, Circular 461.
Over 25 Lasallians gathered in Rhode Island, many from the other District association groups LAMAS (Lasallian Association of Metropolitan Area Schools) and PALM (Philadelphia Area Lasallian Ministries) and a Br. Charles Kitson in Rome via SKYPE, to offer reflections on Ciruclar 461 and how individuals live the Lasallian educational mission. Four of the seven Lasallian International Centre participants were on hand to conduct a panel on the Circular as well as their experience in Rome. An “Association Concept Splash,” group discussion activities, and lunch, allowed Lasallians to field each others’ questions, think about the concept of Lasallian association on a broader level, all while socializing and building stronger Lasallian relationships.
