A Little More Information

This small book provides insights into De La Salle’s experiential discernment process, especially during times of crisis.

From the Introduction: “Parmenie, the special focus of this study, is the name given to the property that crowns an imposing hill rising high above the valley of the Isere river, not far from Grenoble in southeastern France. It is the purpose of this volume to provide for an English speaking audience an introduction to the history of Parmenie and its significance for the life journey of John Baptist de La Salle and the Institute of the Brothers that he founded.”
