Br Visitor 2021 Reflection
Greetings as 2021 unfolds. Centennial Park is a short walk from 16 Roma Avenue and one of my favourite walking places especially in the hot weather where the canopy of aged trees provides a welcome cooling effect. On the Feast of the Holy Family as I walked around the park, I could not help but notice the presence of many families reflecting the ethnicity of Sydney's cosmopolitan society. Families were enjoying the company of each other whether having a picnic, teaching children to...

75 YEARS IN PNG
On this day 75 years ago Brothers Patrick Howard, Celsus McGuire, Lucian Thorpe and Anthony Broderick arrived at Bomana having travelled from Australia. They would not have imagined in 1946 how the Lasallian mission would grow all over Papua New Guinea as we witness now in 2021. They would not have imagined let alone used the term "Lasallian Family", but I am sure they would take great pride in you, the Lasallian family and your various ministries right across Papua New Guinea. T...

When children overcome problems and deal with unpleasant situations, they learn they are capable...

Much like the experience of De La Salle, "one commitment led to another" as she became involved in local, regional, and international Lasallian projects. This is a story of living the mission with hope and generosity. Continue r...
