About the District of Eastern North America

The District of Eastern North America (DENA) is a community of over 250 Brothers of the Christian Schools and 5,000+ Lasallian partners and associates, who together sponsor and operate more than 30 ministries in the northeast region of the United States and Toronto, Canada.

Schools and ministries provide a Lasallian Education and reach from Warren, Michigan, to Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and from Toronto, Canada, to Washington, D.C., Boca Raton Florida, and Jamaica, West Indies.

DENA originally began as three legacy districts (Baltimore, Long Island-New England, New York) and merged to better reflect the current reality of our Lasallian Mission and association among our students, partners, and Brothers throughout  the Northeast.
