National Educational Association: Video Series “Primers” for Anti-Racist White Educators
Inspired by their own experiences working with students trying to reconcile their own identities with the realities of the world around them, as well as conversations they had at the 2017 NEA Conference on Racial and Social Justice, Terry and Luke created a series of YouTube videos they hoped could provide other white educators with ideas, insights and tools to better engage in racial equity work in their own schools and communities.

Centering Prayer | Mondays
7:30-8:30pm

Join us prayer beyond thoughts and words that is healing, strengthening, and refreshing.

To participate please email Maryann Donohue-Lynch for the Zoom link.


“By waiting and by calm you shall be saved, in quiet and in trust your strength lies.”  – Isaiah 30:15

Centering prayer is a form of silent prayer, based on traditional contemplative Christian practices. It is a way of cultivating a deeper relationship with God. It doesn’t replace other forms of prayer but deepens your capacity for all prayer. After our 20 minutes of shared silence we will practice Lectio Divina.

Lori Dressel and her husband have been the administrators of Christian Brother’s La Salle Manor Retreat Center in Plano, Illinois for over 25 years.  She holds a Masters in Pastoral Studies from Loyola University, Chicago, and received her training as a Spiritual Director at Siena Center, Racine, Wisconsin. Lori has a passion for Contemplative prayer and has been leading a Centering Prayer group for several years. You can contact Lori at lorijdressel@gmail.com

“The more you devote yourself in prayer the more you will do well in your work.” (Med 95.1—Feast of St. Genevieve)

Self Care

Throughout history, people have developed extensive knowledge about creating meaningful, well-balanced lives through the use of ritual, space, and the combination of personal and shared moments of reflection. This wisdom has been carried by many philosophical traditions and religions, including our own Lasallian and Catholic traditions. This resource is offered in the spirit of collaboration and knowledge sharing which has characterized these days of change.

Suggestions for Bringing Balance and Rhythm to Working, Living, and Playing at Home
Director of Formation for Mission Amanda Proulx (District of ANZPPNG) has developed a resource that poses questions and offers suggestions for personal reflection and action in response to the current physical distancing and isolation measures Lasallians around the world are experiencing. If it is helpful or if there is any feedback to share, she would be happy to hear it and can be contacted at amandaproulx@delasalle.org.au. View the blog here.
