Coordinators are those Lasallians who have some responsibility for facilitating, animating or guiding a community's Lasallian identity and mission education. There may also be individuals who have taken on an unofficial role in that capacity. Or perhaps you are someone who simply wants to learn more about Lasallian history, pedagogy, and spirituality. Consider this page as a start in that direction.
The resources on this page are ones that either educate you a bit more deeply about the Lasallian mission, provide links to those things that you may want to use with others, or simply introduce the wider scope of the Lasallian world. This website cannot and does not provide every single resource out there. But we would sure like to know about them. So please email me with suggested resources to include on this page or elsewhere.
You should have already taken a look at several of the other "audience" pages - NEWCOMERS and EDUCATORS - since most of the items on those pages will not be repeated here, but they are part of the "foundation" for this page.
FURTHER RESOURCES FOR COORDINATORS
The Story of De La Salle
This children’s book, created by the ARLEP District (Spain & Portugal), tells the story of St. John Baptist de La Salle, using his own voice. The artwork and the text are designed for use with young children. It was produced for the 300th anniversary of De La Salle’s passing into eternal life and has been translated into English in order to reach a larger audience.
TIMELINES – St. John Baptist de La Salle
Below are three online timelines that highlight significant events in the life of St. John Baptist de La Salle.
Some are more detailed than others. They may be well used with students, teachers, and others who are interested in the linear events of De La Salle’s life.
Lasallian Videos – by Scott Gibbs
The videos on this page were created by Scott Gibbs in 1998 and 1999 for major gatherings of Lasallians of the District of San Francisco. Scott was hired by the District because of his professional expertise in putting together videos for large professional corporations. He was tasked with going to all the places where District of San Francisco had invested personnel and financial assistance and convey – through his eyes – what these involvements had led to. There was no advanced “message” that was prescribed beforehand. As a result, the first video, called “Inspiration,” was created, with the subsequent videos emerging afterwards.
Until the end of his life, Scott was highly appreciative of the opportunity to have been able to learn about, document, and be involved with the Brothers, the Lasallian community, and Lasallian education.
