1986 Characteristics of Lasallian Schools
This 1986 document, developed by the Regional Education Committee of the Christian Brothers in the United States, emerged from a multi-year consultation and writing process, producing “a foundational and consensual document for the entire Lasallian system, which has the support of an impressive core of leadership people throughout the Region.”
The Brothers of the Christian Schools in the World Today – A Declaration (1967)
This is “an authoritative statement that would serve as foundation and unifying principle” of the work of the 39th General Chapter of the Brothers of the Christian Schools (1966-67). This 1997 translation of the document corrects some aspects of the original translation, as explained by Br. Luke Salm in the introduction.The document invites Lasallian educators “to resolutely enter upon the path of renewal and adaptation.”
Over the last 50 years, the Declaration has continued to be one of the most pivotal documents in the process of renewal among everyone associated with Lasallian schools, and it retains its relevance, appeal, and vitality to this very day.
