At De La Salle College “Oaklands” all students arrived to Assembly without their green blazers to show solidarity in white. In addition students gave their intentions that followed the various themes throughout the month of peace. A single white flower was left on the stage for the intentions not read out loud as the entire Oaklands community prayed.

 

 

La Salle Academy-Providence students and faculty participated in the second annual Balloon Rosary to celebrate the end of the Lasallian Month of Peace. The environmentally friendly biodegradable rosary was released in a beautiful moment together.

Inspired by the Institute theme for 2018-2019, Ignite Our Hearts of Peace,
this year’s theme invites us to reflect on the experience of the two disciples on the road to Emmaus.

Each year the International Council of Young Lasallians (ICYL) calls upon Lasallians throughout the Institute to participate in this month-long peace awareness project. As Lasallians, we will be fostering peace in our world through prayer, study and action beginning September 21 (the United Nations-sanctioned International Day of Peace) and ending on October 21st.

There is an urgency today to “set on fire” the Lasallian Catholic evangelical mission within each of our educational communities to do as Jesus did by joyfully announcing the radical Good News that God loves us all and calls us to cooperate in building God’s Kingdom.

To continue to safeguard the rights of our children and the young, we ensure a culture of nonviolence that educates for and cultivates peacemaking, advocacy and respect for the God given dignity of human persons and God’s creation.
