The purpose of the Lasallian Mission Council (LMC) is to ensure that the Midwest District fulfills its mission of providing a human and Christian education of the young, especially the poor.
Those who serve on the LMC are representative of the ministries around the District. They assist, guide, and direct the Superintendent of Lasallian Education on mission-related District policies and major initiatives. They determine how best to promote and ensure the quality of the Lasallian mission at each District ministry.
The members of the LMC create and serve on standing committees that address each of the key areas of the Lasallian educational mission: finance, governance, assessment, formation, and association. The LMC administers certain reserve powers for the boards of ministries controlled by Christian Brothers of the Midwest, Inc., guides all of the boards of District ministries, and assists with board development and formation.
