Huether 2022

The 49th annual Huether Lasallian Conference will take place November 17-19, 2022, at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore Inner Harbor Hotel.  

The theme this year is “Together and By Association: Responding to the Signs of the Times,” inspired by the Declaration on the Lasallian Educational Mission: Challenges, Convictions and Hopes (2020). More details and registration information will be released in the coming months. 


ABOUT THE THEME 

The cornerstone that sustains the construction of this mission has been and always will be community. It was undoubtedly one of the great intuitions of the Founder and of the first Brothers. … The community educates, strengthens its members, cares for the weak and nurtures their spirit. It is the best guarantee to respond to the greatest imaginable challenges. To be Lasallian, by definition, is to belong to a community and to commit oneself within that same community to a common task. 

 

Declaration on the Lasallian Educational Mission: Challenges, Convictions and Hopes (2020), page 65 

In our more than 300-year history, Lasallian communities have evolved to proactively address needs in our communities and to boldly respond to the signs of the times. In all that we do, we remain grounded in the vision of our founder, Saint John Baptist de La Salle, to recognize and respond to the needs of the young people entrusted to our care.  

In describing the times in which we are living, Pope Francis has said, “We are not living an era of change but a change of era. As society continues to grapple with many significant challenges, such as attending to mental health needs, responding to increasing acts of violence and mass shootings, creating a racially just world and navigating the disruptions of COVID-19, so, too, do our inclusive Lasallian educational communities. This year, the Huether Lasallian Conference will focus on building up our communities and how we are responding to these challenges while also ensuring that we are meeting the needs of each young person entrusted to our care.   

As we boldly respond to the signs of our times, how do we as a Lasallian educational community respond to these many significant challenges by planting seeds of hope? How can we best meet the mental health and spiritual needs of the young people in our communities? Affirming the rich dialogue at the 2021 Huether, “Compassionate Dialogue and Courageous Conversations: Pathways to Equity and Belonging,” 2022 attendees will continue to build upon the Declaration’s vision of community: to educate, strengthen and care for members of our Lasallian communities so all know they belong.
