Board of Directors
The board is the guarantor in each ministry of the legacy passed to us by our founder, St. John Baptist de La Salle. It is the role of the board to both maintain and grow that vision that is in response to the "signs of the times". They provide a vision and vigilance while at the same time challenging the ministry to be responsive to the needs of the young people under the guardianship of the ministry. They work in cooperation with the ministry's administration to keep the ministry viable and provide both a human and Christian education.
Deeply moved by the neglected state of “the children of the artisans and the poor,” and as a result of their contemplation of God’s saving plan, John Baptist de La Salle and the first Brothers joined together to conduct gratuitous Christian schools.
By combining Christian formation and good quality teaching, and doing so in a brotherly manner, they rendered an important and much-needed service to the Church and society.
The Rule, 2015
Today, the Brothers pursue the Lasallian mission in partnership with men and women who recognize the relevance of the Lasallian charism.
They carry out their mission as a witness, a service, and a communion.
The Institute’s primary concern is the educational needs of those whose dignity and basic rights are not recognized. By its mission, it seeks to make it possible for them to live with dignity as sons and daughters of God. The Institute establishes, renews, and diversifies its works according to the needs of the Reign of God.
