Heritage Program

An exploration of the life and work of St John Baptist De La Salle for anyone associated with a Lasallian work.

We cover the ongoing story from 1719 to the present and Lasallian values, pedagogy and spirituality in 21st century schools and other educational settings.

It is essentially a 'dialogue' between past and present: How does this heritage relate to my daily work with or on behalf of young people?

This is a residential program at the Santa Teresa Spirituality Centre, Ormiston (Brisbane). More background information on the event is included here.

The aims of the program are:

  • To have some relaxing and reflective time away from our workplaces.
  • To enjoy one another's company and support.
  • To learn something of the various Lasallian workplaces of fellow participants and of the work they do there.
  • To reflect on the value and significance of our work within the Lasallian mission on behalf of young people, especially the most vulnerable.
  • To reflect on and identify our own values and spirituality, especially as they relate to our work.
  • To become more familiar with the story of St John Baptist De La Salle
  • To become more familiar with the ongoing story of which we are now part
  • To make connections between the Lasallian stor and our own lives and work.
