Students in High School
Can Consider the Brothers through Talks and Summits
Vocation Summits provide the venue for high school students to learn more about the Brothers.
Throughout the school year, Brothers visit Juniors and Seniors in the ministries of the District of Eastern North America to discuss the topic of Vocation — a strong feeling of suitability for a particular career or occupation.
In your Junior year, we focus on the concept of Vocation itself and the fact that we are all called by virtue of our Baptism commitment, and to live out that call faithfully. In your Senior year, we focus on the Vocation of Brother, and a specific invitation is made to those who express interest to learn and experience more about the Vocation of a De La Salle Christian Brother.
More About Vocation Summits
These informal sessions provide the venue for you to learn more about the Brothers. Students in grades 9 to 12 from high schools, throughout the District of Eastern North America, gather to engage with speakers who share their vocational journey in life. We present a variety of guests whose vocational calling has been to the Priesthood, Brotherhood, and Single or Married Life. When you attend a Vocation Summit, you are given the opportunity to interact with the presenters, as well as students from other schools, in order to gain a deeper understanding of living out your Vocational Calling — no matter what that may look like for you.
Take a closer look — immerse yourself in the Brothers’ life. Spending the day as a teacher alongside students in need, pray in community with the Brothers, and join us for a fraternal meal — this gives you a glimpse into the life of a Christian Brother.
Don’t take our word for it . . . hear what Contacts are saying.
Contacts are young men exploring the Brother’s vocation. Hear firsthand how these young men in discernment live their lives actively considering the Christian Brothers’ life for themselves during one of our Contact Talks gatherings.

A Message from Br. Arturo Martinez, FSC
You are not meant to live to work, work to eat, and eat to live. You were made to be in a relationship with God and your brothers and sisters. Happiness is not about wealth, or power, or fame — it’s about good relationships. If you are really passionate about building relationships — especially a close and living relationship with the Lord fostered through daily prayer and service to those most in need — we the Brothers are experts in building good relationships. We learned it from our Founder St. John Baptist de La Salle, and through our fraternity teaching minds, touching hearts, and changing lives. Consider the possibility of our life!
