Read the full issue now!
The issue starts by hearing directly from those who attended the 46th General Chapter, themed “Building new paths to transform lives.” You’ll read about their experiences, impressions and hopes. We also share the seven pathways, or priority areas, that emerged from the Chapter. You’ll find additional resources on our 46th General Chapter webpage.
We highlight the newly elected Superior General and Council. You’ll learn about a new leadership model that assigns accompanying teams to each Region. The team for RELAN includes Brothers Chris Patiño (General Councilor), Carlos Gómez (Vicar General) and Sergio Leal (executive secretary to the General Council).
In addition, we thank the Superior General and Council who served from 2014-2022. You’ll see a tribute to Brother Robert Schieler, FSC, and a final reflection by Brother Timothy Coldwell, FSC.
When we think about the future, formation is an essential part. Flip to the center of the printed issue for our Lasallian Essentials on Lasallian Formation for Mission: The Pilgrim’s Handbook. You can read past installments of Lasallian Essentials on our website, which has covered Bulletin 260, the Declaration on the Lasallian Educational Mission: Challenges, Convictions and Hopes and Circular 475, From Hope to Commitment: Understanding Lasallian Vocations.
We end our issue highlighting a leadership change at Christian Brothers Services. Brother Michael Quirk, FSC, retired after 14 years as president, and Patrick Lynch has stepped into the role, making him the first non-Brother to lead the organization.
We hope you enjoy this autumn issue and that it helps you think about your role in the future of the mission. Printed copies are being mailed. For now, please enjoy this interactive version or download the PDF.
