Joyfully Walking the Labyrinth of Our Journey
2019: A Year for Great Celebrations
This year is a year of many celebrations in our Lasallian family. There is the tercentenary of the Founder, the Year of Lasallian Vocations, the Jubilee Year for Saint John Baptist de La Salle as proclaimed by Pope Francis, the 10th anniversary celebration of DENA to be held on November 8, 2019, and the 7th annual DENA Women’s Retreat. This year’s retreat will reflect upon and celebrate our mutual accompaniment, as women in the Lasallian family, on our personal and vocational journey. Over these past seven years the women on retreat have experienced the support, encouragement, accompaniment and companionship of one another. During this year of #300LaSalle, we will pause and reflect upon our personal journey and our journey as part of the Lasallian family.
Our retreat begins on International Women’s Day, Friday March 8, 2019. We will be celebrating the launch of Lasallian Women of Hope, the seeds of which were planted at the 2018 DENA Women’s Retreat and is now a program of De La Salle Solidarity ONLUS.
Lasallian Women of Hope supports grassroots projects that remove obstacles and barriers for girls and young women to access a Lasallian education, and actively works to promote the education of girls and young women in our Lasallian family.
