One always knows when Brother Brian Henderson, FSC, an outgoing, energetic man, is near. He’s quick to joke, and share in a hearty laugh.
A Christian Brother for almost 35 years, Brian is a Philadelphia boy, born and raised. Much of his life’s service is dedicated to the youth at St. Gabriel’s Hall in Audubon, Pennsylvania. With over 15 years of collective service at the Hall, first as a Child Care Worker, then later returning as a Director of Residential Services, and currently the Director for the institution, Brother possesses a most generous and open heart, which very much matches his tall stature. A keen ear and Brian’s ability to listen, make him a compassionate presence to the court adjudicated youth, as well as to the staff at St. Gabriel’s Hall.
A speaker on subjects Lasallian, Brian has been a director for Young Lasallian and Lasallian Volunteers’ retreats, as well as a presenter to Faculties and Boards for reflection on Lasallian Educational themes or opening school sessions.
When Brian is not “burning the midnight oils” at the Hall, you’ll find him catching up on his favorite sports teams along with his community, and fellow Lasallians. So much the sports fan, the Lasallian Volunteers named their annual LV alumni and friends bracketology challenge after him. No Brother from the city of brotherly love would be figuratively complete without the love for his hometown Phillies baseball team. You can catch Brian in a lively debate with the young Brothers of the Jeremy House formation community as to which team might be best, but it is almost guaranteed, if the team calls Philadelphia its home, it’s at the top of Brian’s list.
