Celebrate! ["One Heart, One Commitment, One Life #300LaSalle"]
Let us pause to remember that we are in the holy presence of a Loving God.
Miraculously, Lasallians share this centering call to prayer prior to each and every class thanks to the educational wisdom and practices that have been passed down from our founder, Saint John Baptist de La Salle. This academic year (2018-19) the Lasallian community will mark his Feast Day, April 19th as the 300th anniversary of Lasallian ministry and education. May investigation into this collection of Lasallian resources bring the spirit and wisdom of Saint De La Salle's educational legacy closer to the hearts and minds of our 21st century scholars!
