Lasallian Reflection Series

Lasallians Without Limits
2017-2018

This year’s Lasallian theme is “Lasallians Without Limits,” the third Lasallian reflection in a series that has been developed through the year 2021 by the Brothers of the Christian Schools.  The reflection focuses on the creation of sustainable communities and the radical changes in demographics and the environment. The reflection is divided into four sections titled: radical changes in demographics and the environment, citizens of the world and beyond its borders, going to new borders requires discernment, and a look at the present and the future. It encourages Lasallians to respond to these issues and offers questions for personal and community reflection.
