Lasallians are invited to explore and celebrate the theme in their ministries and communities. Lasallian Reflection 5 accompanies the theme and encourages Lasallians to respond to the challenges facing the world today.
“Great Things are Possible” is the sixth in a series of seven annual themes that the Brother Superior and General Council developed following the 45th General Chapter. Each one supports the overall theme of “Living Together Our Joyful Mission.” They offer perspectives to help Lasallians gain insights and develop integrated responses to extend and deepen the relevance of the Lasallian mission.
C475 From Hope to Commitment: Understanding Lasallian Vocations
During the month of June, you are invited to enter into a prayerful and intentional reading of Circular 475, From Hope to Commitment: Understanding Lasallian Vocations.
Brother Superior and the General Councilors in the introduction remark that “we are not offering a definitive word on Lasallian vocations and association, but rather offering an invitation to engage in dialogue” and go on to say, “We believe such an engagement will generate creative insights and encourage new understandings that inspire hearts and nourish our shared commitment to serve God and one another.”
Using a resource developed by the RELAN Office of Lasallian Vocations, you are invited to participate in a five week process of reading and dialogue on the Circular.
