We celebrate this week with Lasallian Schools around the world. Normally we would do a variety of activities, service projects, and more. This year we’re going to be sending a newsletter with reflections from students, testimonials from staff, interesting facts about De La Salle and the Institute, as well as a prayer.
What is Founder’s Week?
During Founder’s Week, from May 11-18, we celebrate the Life of Saint John Baptist de la Salle
What did St. John Baptist De La Salle Do?
In the 1680’s he founded the Brothers of the Christian Schools. He was declared a saint in 1900 and in 1950 he was declared the Patron saint of educators. The Brothers have gone on to start many schools including Cristo Rey de la Salle!
