On September 13-14, the District Council and the Lasallian Mission Council (LMC) held a joint meeting at the Carmelite Spiritual Center in Darien, IL. This was the first joint meeting in several years, and the two days consisted of both plenary meetings as well as concurrent separate meetings to discuss each council’s business items.
The LMC updated the revised Lasallian Mission Audit which is replacing the Mission Assessment tool as well as beginning plans for next summer’s Mission Congress. The LMC will visit select Chicago ministries prior to their next meeting in January.
The District Council welcomed its newest consultant, Sister Cathy Bertrand, SSND, who succeeds Sr. Dolores Montini, AFSC. The Lasallian Mission Council welcomed John Dowdell, Principal at San Miguel School of Tulsa. Brother Chris Englert was elected the Vice-Chair and Dr. Pamela Jessee was elected the Secretary for the LMC.
Both councils agreed to make this an annual event.
