Women of Zeal!

In just three short weeks, I’ll be boarding my flight to attend the Lasallian Global Women’s Symposium 2017 on behalf of the Midwest District. This gathering is July 16-19, 2017 in Aukland, New Zealand. In a recent letter from Superior General Robert Schieler, FSC – we were encouraged to reflect on where we find community, what gives the deepest meaning in our lives, what causes and concerns move us to action, and where we find God in daily moments. This gathering gives each of us an opportunity to “come and tell” things we learn, share and bring back to our various communities.

This blog will give you a constant peek into our days together; a place where you can come and hear me tell about events, conversations, new ideas and paths in the journey we’ll be sharing together as Lasallian women!  Together, we’ll spread the true zeal of our charism and plant seeds of newness for future journeys and growth!

How appropriate that this event is being held in beautiful New ZEALand.  I look forward to sharing with all of you!

Feel the Zeal: Lasallian Days 2015

Can you believe it is nearing the end of January? Where did the time go?

One of the biggest intentions for the Midwest District Office was to be present to our family, friends, alumni, and Brothers around the country. We kicked off our season in Stevens Point, WI and zipped around the Midwest to Chicago, the Twin Cities, and Memphis.

We are geared up to visit the Southwest, the West Coast, and the Sunshine State.

Brother Larry Schatz, FSC, Visitor/Provincial of the Midwest District, will be in San Diego, Sarasota, and Naples. Brother Thomas Johnson, FSC Former Vicar General for the Brothers worldwide and current Novitiate Director for our region will be in Tucson and Phoenix.

Both of these men walk with our Brothers through the many stages of their life and serve as a witness to their faith.

March for Life, January 25


Greetings From the Nation’s Capital
Please know that your school’s pro-life delegation is invited to join with other delegations from Lasallian schools at the March for Life on Friday, January 25. We will assemble at the Navy Memorial (8th St. and D St.) in downtown Washington, beginning at 12 noon and then departing at 12:30pm for the rally on the National Mall. These links will take you to street maps of Washington that should prove very helpful:

Our Plan
Meet and socialize at the Navy Memorial (circular plaza close to the intersection of 8th St. and D St.). In case the Navy Memorial is off limits, plan B is to meet at corner of National Archives (Pennsylvania Ave. and 9th St.)

Walk to the National Mall (the area between 7th and 9th Streets) to listen to rally speeches

Congregate at the “modern red sculpture” in front of the Hirschorn Museum (7th and Jefferson); group picture

Approximate start time of the march itself

Approximate end of march. Some Lasallian delegations will turn left from Constitution Ave. onto Second St. and rest at St. Joseph’s on Capitol Hill (313 Second St.

Possibly Helpful Hints
The closest metro stop to the Navy Memorial is Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter.
For those of you attending the Youth Rally and Mass in the Verizon Center, it is approximately a ten minute walk to the Navy Memorial.
If you would like to speak with me (Bro. Peter) on the phone, my cell phone number is 508-847-4132.
In case you are having trouble reaching me by cell phone on the day of the march itself, you may also try Bro. Richard Galvin at 347-635-9596.
We have a large banner that reads “Lasallians for Life” and “Live Jesus in our hearts, forever!”.
The website for the Youth Rally and Mass (Verizon Center and Comcast Center) is

For those who are new to the march…at the end you may want to visit Union Station, which has a metro stop and a plethora of eating establishments.
Pray for good weather! If we have inclement weather, it is unlikely that we will stay at the Navy Memorial from noon-12:30!
If you’d like to see the place where we’ll congregate at 1:20pm, type modern red sculpture hirschorn into google images.

This is the first year that we have invited Lasallian schools to march together. I hope your group will join us! Please say a prayer that this plan works smoothly. Certainly we will be able to improve upon it for the March of 2014. Thank you for helping instill in your students an appreciation for the inestimable dignity of human life.

St. John Baptist de La Salle, pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts, forever!
