Navigating Uncertain Times
Lasallian Educators on the Front Line
As COVID-19 has changed our everyday normal, our Lasallian Educators: Christian Brothers, Child Care Workers, Social Workers, Counselors, Information Technology Specialists, Board Members, Administrators have risen to the challenge. Lasallian education has always been innovative and practical, meeting students where they are, addressing the current reality, and our Lasallian family is doing exactly that.
In a matter of weeks, Lasallian educational institutions have pivoted from in-class instruction to teaching in virtual classrooms, in living rooms, dining rooms, family rooms, and bedrooms of the students, continuing their coursework.
For our youth and family service ministries, St. John Baptist de La Salle’s instruction to be brothers and sisters to the young people “entrusted to their care” has taken on a much deeper meaning today. In these uncertain times, Lasallian students and clients living in our residential care facilities look to Brothers and Lasallian Partners more than ever for a sense of safety, guidance, and care.
For those youth and their families not in residential care, but reliant on youth and family ministries for daily supervision and support, Lasallians are still answering their needs while navigating the challenges the coronavirus presents to our overall health and safety.
Thank you for your prayers and positivity, and for showing your Lasallian Educators your appreciation as we continue to navigate these days, weeks, and months ahead.
