Creating a New Lasallian Map

Building New Paths to Transform Lives

Two Brothers have written and distributed a small booklet to help facilitate conversations among the Lasallian Family worldwide. It is provided in response to the invitation from the Preparatory Commission of the 46th General Chapter to Lasallians everywhere to think about, discuss, and share their thoughts about the future direction of the Institute.

Printed copies have been made available to each District in the Institute, both for the Brothers and for interested Lasallians.

On this page are downloadable copies of that same booklet, provided in English, Español, and Français.

Prayer Services for General Use

Below are some prayers services that may be used with any group – students, parents, teachers, boards, etc. They are particularly focused on dealing with the challenges of the recent pandemic but could be used in any context.

They are provided in PDF and in Powerpoint formats. For those leading the prayer, all you will need to do is to have readers for the various sections – or allow others to read an individual page in silence if there is a musical selection on the same slide.

Of course, you are welcome to edit the Powerpoint as you wish.
