So much has changed regarding the faith lives of young people, but our role as Lasallian educators remains the same. We hope that you can join us and be a part of creating new pathways to engage young people in the inspiring work of participating in God’s Mission for humanity.

When the Brother Luke Salm Religious Education Workshop was established 12 years ago, then Brother Visitor Dennis Malloy wrote:

This workshop is concerned first and foremost with the ministry of the Word, with the school as a ‘means of salvation,’ and with the evangelization and catechesis of our young people. Practically, we hope to bring you together so that you might know and be encouraged by one another, share your wisdom and best practices, create and innovate new practices.”

We hope you will join us in continuing this vision.

LukeSalmAbout the Brother Luke Salm Religious Education Workshops

The goal of this annual workshop is to enhance and support the Christian education and evangelization of the young by providing professional development for and accompaniment to the District’s Religious Studies instructors, Campus Ministers, and other Lasallian educators.

Named in memory and honor of Luke Salm, a Brother of the Christian Schools and a theologian, he was the first non-ordained person in the Catholic Church to receive a Doctorate in Sacred Theology (STD). He ministered in religious and theological education at Manhattan College for over 40 years. He played a significant role in drafting The Brothers of the Christian Schools: A Declaration, a seminal text from the 39th General Chapter following Vatican II for renewal of the Brother’s vocation and the Lasallian educational mission. Lovingly known as “one of the Lasallian giants, his very ‘presence brightened everything’ and his devotion as brother, teacher, and friend inspired and taught many, not only ‘the road to heaven,’ but the pathway toward a more full and glorious life” (William Mann, FSC).
