The 45th General Chapter rejuvenated the spirit of the Institute with a new outlook, new thinking, a new vision, a new mission and a new approach to our Lasallian world. "We are living in a time of grace, a time of transition, a time to return to the heart of our charismatic and Gospelcentered history. It is a time that inspires us to return to the freedom, audacity, and creativity of the first mystical experience. We face this moment as a call for a personal and institutional conversion towards the world of the vulnerable and impoverished." (1.15, Circular 469).
Responding in hope to the 45th General Chapter, Brother Rafa Matas, General Councillor, initiated various strategies for using the year 2019 as the Year of Lasallian Vocations, in order to renew the vocational spirit, culture, expectations and structures on the Regional, District and Community levels. One such initiative is the Vocation Bulletin which keeps un touch with the entire Lasallian world and makes everyone "focus" on 2019 as the "Year of Lasallian Vocations".
