Prayer & Formation Resources for Lasallian Groups
These sets of resources around specific themes are meant to be used for prayer and discussion by Lasallian educators, administrators, board members, students, and others interested in pursuing their Lasallian identity.
Many of these began with a Board focus and were adapted for use with school groups, teacher groups, Brother groups, and any groups of gathered Lasallians. If portions of them are used in other prayer services, it would appropriate to give proper attribution to the sources used.
Manhattan College – Lasallian Stained Glass Windows
These stained glass windows of John Baptist de La Salle, originally created in 1900, were moved to the chapel at Manhattan College in 2016.
The windows guide viewers as they move through the Chapel to visualize moments in the Saint’s life — from his childhood in Reims, to the vow he took with his Brothers, to his death in Rouen and his glorification in heaven, where he is welcomed by Christ and acknowledged as a great teacher by Saint Ignatius Loyola.
Below in the tab “WINDOWS” are large files that show each of the windows in detail.
There is also a video that gives the history, process, and results of a project to relocate the Lasallian stained glass windows from the former Novitiate building in Barrytown, NY, to the chapel at Manhattan College in the Bronx. It is a good discussion starter on the topic of alumni engagement and Lasallian art. (13 Minutes)

Photomosaic of St. John Baptist de La Salle
This is an image of St. John Baptist de La Salle that was created from a large collection of photographs from around the Lasallian world. The further back you step from it, the more the image emerges. It illustrates the fact that the face of De La Salle today is present and lived through all those who are part of his educational heritage.
Let Us Remember – Octavo for Choir
This is a setting of a popular invocation of the Lasallian prayer: “Let us remember that we are in the Holy Presence of God.” The setting is arranged for four voices (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass) and simple to learn. Nevertheless, the harmonies are rich and complex. It is a great piece for choirs in Lasallian schools to us at their liturgies, prayer services, or as a prayer for Lasallian events.
HERE or below is a link to the page that includes the print Octavo, the PDF Octavo, and a recording sample.
