A Little More Information

This annual formation program for social justice is set in a variety of locations. It is a one-week program that promotes the continuing process of conversion to solidarity with persons in poverty and to provide an authentic response to the Gospel and our Lasallian vocation. It is designed to be experiential, educational, creatively practical, and reflective.

Developed by Partners and Brothers, it is a response to the call from both grassroots Lasallians and General Chapters of the Brothers for programs that strengthen “association for educational services of the poor.”

The purpose of LSJI is to promote the continuing process of conversion to solidarity with persons in poverty and to provide an authentic response to the Gospel and our Lasallian vocation. It is designed to be experiential, educational, creatively practical, and reflective. LSJI seeks to help participants draw closer to the world of the poor in order to be evangelized by them. LSJI embodies the Lasallian commitment to association for the educational service of the poor and the rights of children.

LSJI consists of four integrated components:

    • a face-to-face encounter with persons living in poverty,
    • an examination of the Lasallian tradition and the Church teachings on poverty and social justice, as well as sociological and economic commentaries on these issues,
    • a community of Lasallians who will pray together and further discern their Lasallian vocation,
    • an exploration of their roles in creating programs of social justice as catalysts for influence and change in their local ministries.

LSJI is open to all Lasallians who are engaged in Lasallian ministries across the Region.

Past locations and topics have been Immigration in Tucson, AZ and El Paso, TX; Gang Violence in Chicago, IL; Homelessness in San Francisco, CA; and Civil Rights in Memphis, TN.
