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.

Declaration And 2015 RULE
ANNOTATED – The Brothers of the Christian Schools in the World Today: A Declaration (1967)

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.

Since its publication in 1967, The Brother of the Christian Schools in the World Today: A Declaration has profoundly impacted the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. This impact can be seen in specific sections of the current Rule, approved by the 45th General Chapter in 2014 and by the Vatican in 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. On each page of the text that of this version of the Declaration, the citations on the left margin indicate specific Articles in the current 2015 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.
