This version of the Declaration, the work of the 39th General Chapter of the Brothers of the Christian Schools (1966-67) is the 1997 translation of the document with annotations in the margins that refer to the Rule of 2015.

This annotated version of the Declaration provides documentation of the specific parts of the text which were foundational for parts of the new Rule.

For further reference, the full text of each part of the Rule that is cited are listed at the end of the document.

This resource was researched and prepared in 2018 by Br. Paul Avvento, FSC.

St. John Baptist De La Salle: Journey of a Man

This one-man show by Michael Cook, now-retired professor of drama at Saint Mary’s College of California, presents the life of St. John Baptist de La Salle in an  engaging, dramatic, and comprehensive fashion. No one has ever done such a depiction of this Patron Saint of Teachers, and Michael does justice to all of the story’s drama, nuances, and sets of characters involved.

The production was written by Michael, his wife Jeffra, and Dan Cauthon, along with a host of other collaborators. It is a project that came about as a project taken on while he was part of the Buttimer Institute of Lasallian Studies.

Actor: Michael Cook
