Brothers and Lasallian friends and family members gathered on Saturday, July 25, for the annual Midwest District Day at Lewis University. Brothers met all morning and engaged in a process to converse about the state of the District as the new Visitor term begins. Brothers Bede and Michael, the two new Auxiliary Visitors, also had a chance to share a bit about their own roles going forward.
In the afternoon several “breakout sessions” occurred, including one involving the six participants in the Camino experience which concluded in Spain on July 22. The District nurses, who were holding their annual meeting concurrently, were also present for consultations.
At 5:00pm the District Day liturgy began in St. Charles Borromeo chapel. The mass honored the eight jubilarians, and also included special ceremonies for the young men in various phases of initial formation.
The liturgy concluded with a special blessing for the New Visitor Team, followed by a reception.
THANKS to all who helped make District Day 2015 such a success!
