To mark the tercentenary of the entrance into heaven of Saint Jean-Baptiste de La Salle patron of educators, a Mass was celebrated in the church of Saint Sulpice in Paris on February the 2nd.

This parish was dear to the Founder. He studied in the seminary there and set up his first school in Paris in the Rue Princesse, so it is an ‘unmissable’ place for all Lasallians.


Within the framework of the World Youth Day and the pilgrimage of several young people from different parts of the world to Panama City, the International Encounter of Young Lasallians was held on Tuesday, January 22 at the De La Salle School, in the El Cangrejo neighborhood. The goal was to come together as a Lasallian family to celebrate fraternity and share the joy of our vocations. This as part of the year of Lasallian vocations.

Around 600 young people participated between companions and volunteers (artists, animators, speakers, panelists, etc.) from different Districts. 100 from México North, 44 from Antilles-México South, 8 from Lasallian Association of Spain and Portugal (ARLEP), 330 from Central America-Panama, 87 from France, 14 from the USA Midwest and 20 from other Districts such as Norandino, Brazil-Chile, Peru – Bolivia and Argentina –Paraguay.
