A surprising gift of the current situation has been the regularity and ability for Lasallians to connect with other Lasallians who are geographically distant. COVID has challenged all to be creative, adaptable and innovative. For the Formation for Mission Team, this has meant actively fostering a vibrant Young Adult community over zoom.
Two gatherings that have been adapted from the in-person experience to the online zoom space are Drop-In Experiences and Parmenie Experiences:
Drop-in Experiences: are an invitation to simply drop-in and connect with other Lasallian Alumni across communities. These are social events where people are able to bring a coffee or tea with them and enjoy 45 minutes of authentic connection with new and familiar faces from all parts of the District. Each event is joyfully facilitated and breakout rooms are filled with laughter and storytelling.
Drop-in Zoom Link - The Last Tuesday of every month for 45 Minutes
Parmenie Experiences: are for people on the journey who are seeking something more - namely, community, rest and purpose. Paremenie is the place where De La Salle sought his own rest in the south of France. Today, Parmenie experiences gather people together to share stories and offer each other mutual nourishment. Parmenie continues to be a place for each person to come as they are, engage in authentic dialogue with themselves, others, and God, and re-engage in everyday life.
