2006, 2013, & 2020 AIMEL Reports

(Assemblée Internationale de l’association pour la Mission Educative Lasallienne)
International Assembly for Association in the Lasallian Educational Mission

The history of the Assemblies on the Lasallian Educational Mission began during the 43rd General Chapter (2000) when it was decided to hold “an international meeting of Brothers, Partners and Associates(Proposition 3) and an International Assembly for the Lasallian Educational Mission (Proposition 7) to be held before the next Chapter (in 2007).”

The Commission for the Lasallian Educational Mission (MEL) and the Commission  for Associates for the Lasallian Educational Mission designed the process for a unique event: the 1st International Assembly. To this end, the entire Institute followed a long and fruitful process of local Assemblies and regional Assemblies, culminating in the International Assembly of 2006.

A Little More Information



The work done over the five years in the local Assemblies, in which more than 1,000 Lasallian educators from all over the world directly participated, was summarised in the report presented at the 1st AIMEL that was held in Rome from 23 October to 4 November 2006, with a large representation of Lay Lasallians, Sisters and Brothers from about 50 countries, where the 42 mother tongues spoken highlighted the international dimension of the Lasallian world.

The report of the 2006 International Assembly was presented during the 44th General Chapter by Brother Frederick Mueller (from the District of Long Island-New England) with the theme of Mission, together with Eveline Geoffroy (District of France) who reported on the themes of Association and Formation and Gery Short (District of San Francisco, USA) with the theme of Structures.

The third AIMEL scheduled for 2020 was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic (#AIMEL2020). For this reason, special online sessions were scheduled in 2021, leading up to the final, in-person phase in November 2022.
