Founder's Week honors the legacy of Saint John Baptist de La Salle, who founded the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools for the purpose of education, particularly with young and the poor. Over 350 years later, we still recognize and share in this amazing story as we build upon it today. Though we are physically apart, I invite all of us to come together in celebration of what makes us truly unique, our Lasallian Heritage.
The Five Lasallian Core Principles are a hallmark of our educational experience and connect us with schools in 80 countries around the world. Each day, we will share a personal reflection given to us by a member of our CBU Community that focuses on each of these principles. In a special way, I invite you also to join us as a community of faith for a special Founder's Week Prayer Service on Tuesday, April 7 at 4:00 p.m. through Instagram Live.
In closing, my encouragement to each of us is to take the time to learn more about our mission through those we share our experiences with, our community members. Our mission is a vibrant one that engages us, challenges us, and reminds us that we are always in the Holy Presence of God.
Director of Campus Ministry
