The Christian Brothers Midwest District is one of four Districts in the Lasallian Region of North America, also known as the Région Lasallienne de l’Amérique du Nord (RELAN). RELAN is comprised of Lasallian ministries in the United States and Canada.

The Midwest District encompasses eight states and includes three universities, 14 high schools, four middle schools, one elementary school, four retreat centers, two publishing houses, and one Provincialate office. Within the District there are currently 145 Brothers and hundreds of lay partners, all working together to further the mission of the De La Salle Christian Brothers.
