The Catholic News Service and the National Catholic Reporter both covered the recent visit of Brother Alvaro Rodriguez Echeverria, F.S.C., the superior general of the Christian Brothers, to Saint Mary's. The national outlets reported on Brother Alvaro's address on the importance of empowering the poor through  globalization in education, which he delivered as the guest of honor at Saint Mary’s annual De La Salle Week Convocation on Wednesday, April 24. 

Brother Alvaro is awarded with an honorary doctorate in education from Brother President Ronald Gallagher.	Additionally, the website of the Christian Brothers Conference of North America reported on Brother Alvaro's visit to Saint Mary's in the article" Superior General Addresses Crowd at Saint Mary’s College."

The Convocation, which drew a crowd of more than 300 to the College's Chapel, is the centerpiece of SMC's annual week-long celebration of the life of Saint John Baptist de La Salle, patron saint of teachers and founder of the Christian Brothers, and of Saint Mary's 150 years of Lasallian heritage and mission.
