The latest special issue of De La Salle Today focuses on the Year of Lasallian Vocations, which is being celebrated December 2, 2018 – November 24, 2019, with the theme “One Heart. One Commitment. One Life.”
This issue features stories that highlight the three goals of the Year of Lasallian Vocations: (1) to celebrate and give thanks for our common heritage and our vitality through our association for the transformative human and Christian education of the young, especially the poor, (2) to renew our commitment to respond to the reality and needs of today through promoting our mission, charism and founding story, and (3) to share our hope for the future within the unity and diversity of Lasallian vocations by witnessing the movement of the Spirit in our lives and ministry.
The magazine begins by recounting our heritage and founding story, then focusing on responding to the needs of today, delving into the importance of formation, examining the role of women in De La Salle’s life and today’s mission, and finally our own personal vocational calls. Special to this issue are reflection questions at the end of each article for personal and/or communal reflection.
The hope of this issue is to reinvigorate Lasallians’ faith and zeal to deepen the call to serve. Lasallians are also encouraged to share this issue with others as a tool to learn more about the Lasallian charism and mission.
