A Little More Information

This is a Circular from the Generalate in Rome. These are administrative documents published by a canonical Superior. In some Districts, the Brother Visitor publishes circulars while Brother Superior General and his Council publish such for the whole Institute. They serve to make important events known, indicate the situation of the Institute with regard to important topics o to present short biographies of deceased Superiors.


This present Circular addresses the growing awareness of, and engagement with, the principle of “Association” within the Lasallian charism. Working “together and by association,” all Lasallians share in the Lasallian family as they live out the Lasallian mission.

Section Headings:

  1. Association: A Fundamental Characteristic of the Lasallian Charism
  2. Fundamental Elements of Lasallian Association
  3. Common Characteristics experienced in Different Ways

    This circular is a powerful reflection on Lasallian Association for Mission. Six chapters are bookended by an introduction and a conclusion. The chapters are brief enough to each be read and discussed by groups of Lasallians. I have used Circular 461 with groups as small as six and as large as 100 with good success. The study guide (also a resource on this website) is a helpful tool for guiding a group discussion on each chapter.

    A great resource and accessible read. Easy to find yourself in this document written not only to Brothers but inclusive of all who serve the Lasallian mission. Easy to find something rich and life-giving every time you pick it up.
