Dear Lasallians,

I hope this edition of Living Lasallian finds you well as you attempt to keep cool this summer.

In my first month in my new position with the District, I’m already getting to interact with many Lasallian colleagues and students, just returning from the Lasallian Youth Assembly. Hosted at the beautiful Niagara University, with St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute as our host school, I’m hopeful because our Lasallian charism is strong among our students and faculty. Their optimism, rooted in Gospel values, is inspiring, and I look forward to strengthening the hallmarks of faith, service, and community throughout the District. I am very grateful for the opportunity to work with the District team, especially with the Mission and Ministry Office and I look forward to working with all of you in our shared Catholic, Lasallian educational mission.


Many Blessings,

Mrs. Maryann Donohue-Lynch
Associate Executive Director
for Mission and Ministry
