Dear Brother Visitors
It is my great pleasure to address you on behalf of Br. Robert Schieler, our Brother Superior General.Throughout 2019, the 300th anniversary of the ending of the earthly pilgrimage of our Founder and his entrance into eternal life, many events have been held across the Institute to thank God for 300 years of fidelity to the educational mission entrusted to us. These events have also allowed us to celebrate the difference that this mission has made in the lives of many who have been touched by it throughout more than three centuries, especially the poor.
As we approach the end of this special year, we are preparing the Jubilee Year's closing ceremony in the Casa Generalizia (Generalate). A solemn Mass will be celebrated on December 1st, at 11:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary dedicated to St. John Baptist de La Salle.
Br. Superior instructed me to extend an open invitation to all Lasallians who can and would like to participate in the closing event here in Rome. Therefore, in Br. Superior´s name, I cordially invite you to consider the possibility of joining us personally, or of sending Brothers and other Lasallians from your District/Delegation. It will be an honor having you or your representatives with us.
As the Mother House will be hosting several events at the time of the closing of the 300th anniversary, we kindly ask that those able to participate make their own housing arrangements. We recommend that they contact Casa La Salle at their earliest convenience.
Kindly please let us know if you would like to participate, writing to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than October 14, 2019.
Best wishes and warm regards,
Br. Gustavo Ramírez, FSC
General Coordinator for the 300th Anniversary Program
