Dear Lasallians,

Easter blessings to you.

I hope the joy of the Easter season, and the energy and new life that comes each spring, are in full bloom within you.

Life and vitality in mission are evident in so many ways in our District, especially as we answer Brother Alvaro’s call to become Lasallians without Borders.

We are living up to that challenge in the remarkable life and legacy work of Brother Dominic Jordan with the street kids of Kenya, and in the Twinning relationship between our secondary schools of DENA and the English speaking schools of our Lwanga District in East Africa.

Rich signs of the Spirit’s outpouring through the Lasallian Mission!

It is the power of this Spirit, this generous love of God through each one of us that enables such a diverse community of believers as we, to work together as one Lasallian community in service to young people, with special concern for the poor, the least loved, and the marginalized


Brother Dennis Malloy, FSC
