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.

The Brothers have just returned from their Regional retreat hosted at Lewis University, Romeoville, Illinois. Now, in the District’s Resources, we are hosting the Assembly’s prayer services, Called To Be videos, and the keynote address transcripts from Father Bernard J. Lee, S.M., PhL., ThD. , Sister Mary Sujita, S.N.D., and Brother Alvaro Rodriguez Echeverria, FSC (archived video coming soon).
