Rome, Italy – Our Institute Superior General, Brother Robert Schieler, FSC, took some time out of his busy schedule during last month’s Synod to sit down with Salt and Light’s ‘Witness’ for an interview. Speaking with host Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB, Br. Robert covered many subjects, most importantly sharing the world-wide scope of our Lasallian mission, and what it means to be called to a Lasallian vocation.
