Brother Robert Schaefer, FSC, of the District of Eastern North America (DENA) has announced the Adrien Nyel Project: Igniting a Zeal for Teaching, a new initiative that seeks to engage young adults to promote the vocation of the teacher and invite them on a journey to discover the Lasallian charism and heritage. It is also a renewed commitment to the formation and accompaniment of young Lasallian teachers. The initiative is inspired by the relationship of Adrien Nyel and John Baptist de La Salle, who first met on the doorstep of the Convent of the Sisters of the Child Jesus in Reims.
Brother Ernest Miller, FSC, has been appointed to be the founding director of this project. He currently serves as the vice president for mission, diversity, and inclusion at La Salle University in Philadelphia.
