Brother Superior General Armin Luistro, FSC, and the General Council will visit the Lasallian Region of North America (RELAN), beginning with a retreat with the Regional Conference of Christian Brothers on June 9 at Mont La Salle in Napa, California, followed by meetings with District and Regional leadership June 10-14. They will meet with leaders of Lasallian colleges and universities on June 15 before concluding their visit by spending time at various ministries from June 17-19.
Stemming from the One La Salle vision of the 46th General Chapter, the General Council has committed itself to visit all five Regions this year with the purpose of understanding how the Districts and Regions operate organizationally, learning the strengths and challenges related to living the mission, and considering how the direction set forth by the General Chapter, AIMEL III and the Global Compact on Education can be applied in each Region and serve as an opportunity for renewal and greater collaboration.
Prior to the RELAN visit, the Superior General and General Council completed their visits to the Pacific Asia Regional Conference (PARC) and the Lasallian Region of Europe and the Mediterranean (RELEM). They plan to make their visits to the Lasallian Region of Latin America (RELAL) in September 2023 and conclude with the Lasallian Region of Africa (RELAF) in November 2023.
