De La Salle Brothers from Rome to visit DLSU-D
Posted on May 15, 2018 at 4 PM
DLSU-D is once again blessed to be given an opportunity to be visited by two of the Brothers from Rome on May 16, 2018.
The University welcomes Br. Nestor Anaya FSC - Secretary for Mission from Mexico and Br. Paco Chiva FSC - Secretary for Asociation from ARLEP who will be visiting other LEAD countries, Hong Kong and Myanmar prior to their visit to the Philippines on May 12-20, 2018.
Over-all the objectives of their visit to LEAD are as follows:
- Appreciate better the reality of LEAD’s educational mission and understanding of Association;
- Get in touch with people who motivate the mission and association; as well as the support structures of mission and association;
- Visit Institutions/ministries specifically those where people from different religions and cultural background gather;
- Understand the context in which the Lasallian institutions are established and how they have evolved;
- Get feedback on the “Lasallian Criteria” document and experiences of “association” and its different models;
- Offer information regarding projects derived from the 45th General Chapter.
They are looking forward to have a dialogue with the following stakeholders and groups:
- Teachers and administration, preferably a mix of Catholics and non-Catholics;
- LS volunteers, Signum Fidei or equivalents who are committed to the Lasallian mission (experience of Association);
- Some Mission Council members or its equivalent in the local area (if applicable);
- Some District Council or leadership team members;
- Students, preferable a mix of Catholics and non-Catholics;
- And be able to visit some ministries.
For DLSU-D, both Brothers shall spend time in a conversation with the formation teams of the University together with the Parents’ Organization (POLCA). They will also visit and observe some of the classes of our Night College and engage both students and the faculty in another conversation. They too shall visit the Residents of our Bahay Pag-asa (House of Hope) program.
Let us warmly welcome the Brothers and greet them when we see them on campus. May this also be an opportunity for the DLSU-D community, especially those who have been identified to interact with them during their short visit, to appreciate all the more our worldwide Lasallian mission and the work that we do together and by association.
