About the Event

As the Lasallian message has spread around the world, it has also been embraced by many students and teachers alike – who are not Christian. This is a situation De La Salle could not have foreseen, but it is the result of the attractiveness of his vision and his charism within which all Lasallians – regardless of their beliefs – find themselves at home. This is where in Singapore, the traditional understanding of Lasallian Spirituality has been enlarged as it has been shared more widely among the diversity of people who have come to be associated through their work in implementing the Lasallian vision.

The SJIOBA in partnership with La Salle House, a Retreat Centre of the La Salle Brothers is organising a talk on Knowing the Founder and His Mission. Br Collin Wee FSC will touch on what seems to make De La Salle’s vision attractive to so many that it first embraces young people where they are and seeks to save them by means of an education that touches not only their minds but also their hearts. Thus, the talk will stress on the respect for individual - students, teachers and all Lasallians – for their persons, for their destiny, for their beliefs.
