Dear Lasallians of DENA,

This month marks the one year anniversary of Living Lasallian E-newsletter. Yep, the E-news has been hitting your mailbox for 12 months now! We certainly hope you’ve been enjoying our monthly publication. I am always open to suggestions and comments on how to make it better for you, just drop me an e-mail at

In this month of love, may we remember the true love and compassion of two of our Brothers, Saint Brother Miguel Febres Cordero (February 9th) and Blessed Brother James Miller, FSC (February 13th). Even though their Feast Day and Remembrance have just passed, we certainly can take a moment to reflect on the example of their lives, their sacrifice, and their love for the students most entrusted to their care.

Live Jesus in our Hearts . . .

Your zeal must go so far that you are
ready to give your very life,
so dear to you are the
children entrusted to you.
