This year, 2019, marks the 300th anniversary of the death of Saint John Baptist de La Salle, Patron Saint of Teachers and founder of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. As such, The Institute has designated 2019, a Jubilee Year, the Year of Lasallian Vocations.
Throughout the year and around the world, events and celebrations are honoring our common Lasallian mission of faith, service, and community through the theme highlighting that we are one: One Heart, One Commitment, One Life.
It is a year not only to honor La Salle’s impact and mission, but to marvel in the impact and vastness of the Lasallian network, which teaches more than 900,000 students across 80 countries worldwide. It is a reminder that regardless of our backgrounds, we are all one. And when we work together for the common good, we become pilgrims, a testament to our heritage that maybe even changes the world in the process.
