May 15 marks the Solemnity of Saint John Baptist de La Salle, also celebrated as Founder’s Day. While Founder’s Day celebrations are different in this time of COVID-19, Lasallians are still taking time to remember the founder of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools and patron saint of teachers and celebrate the impact of the mission he started to provide a human and Christian education to the young, especially the poor.
