The Worldwide Lasallian family.
The De La Salle Brothers in our district of Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan and Papua New Guinea are part of a global network of around five thousand Brothers around the world.
The Brothers work to improve the lives of disadvantaged communities in countries such as South Sudan, Sri Lanka, India and Mexico.
The Generalate of the Brothers of the Christian Schools is based in Rome and is the official residence of the Brother Superior General, Br Robert Schieler and his Council.
It is from this building that the De La Salle Institute is governed and where the administration of anything connected with the De La Salle Institute is supervised.
Five councillors from the key geographic regions of the Lasallian family are based at the Generalate.
