David Hotek Receives Letters of Affiliation
On May 1, 2019, David Hotek, Lasallian Animator at St. Joseph H.S. in Westchester, IL, was affiliated to the Institute during an all school ceremony at the school. The Letters of Affiliation were received from Brother Robert Schieler, Superior General, and presented by Brother Larry Schatz. The honor acknowledges David’s association with the Institute of the Brothers for over 50 years. That service includes 36 years at St. Joseph H.S. as teacher, assistant principal, principal, campus minister and currently the Lasallian Animator. President Brother Thomas Harding praised him as someone who has consistently lived out Lasallian spirituality in his life, and who has helped others to understand it.
During the years that David was a Christian Brother, he taught at Montini Catholic High School, St. Joseph High School, St. Patrick High School and Lewis University. David also served for 18 years on the Board of Directors of LaSalle Manor Retreat Center and was the District Lasallian Family Coordinator for five years. He is presently a member of the steering committee of Lasallian Companions, a group that provides opportunities for retired Lasallians to be of service to the Midwest District and to local ministries.
