Lasallian Institutions

Lasallian educational institutions are educational institutions affiliated with the De La Salle Brothers, a Roman Catholic religious teaching order founded by French Priest Saint Jean-Baptiste de La Salle, who was canonized in 1900 and proclaimed by the Vatican in 1950 as patron saint of all teachers. In regard to their educational activities the Brothers have since 1680 also called themselves "Brothers of the Christian Schools", associated with the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools; they are often referred to by themselves and others by the shorter term "Christian Brothers", a name also applied to the unrelated Congregation of Christian Brothers or Irish Christian Brothers, also providers of education, which commonly causes confusion.

The De La Salle Brothers teach over 900,000 students in 82 countries.

Lasallian educational institutions come to prayer with:

"Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God".

"I will continue O my God to do all my actions for love of you".

They close prayer with the response:

Saint John Baptist de La Salle,
Pray for us.
Live Jesus In Our Hearts, Forever!
