De La Salle Heritage Days 2020 Banner

 

De La Salle Heritage Days is an event for Saint Mary’s students, Christian Brothers, faculty and staff to increase awareness, deepen understanding, and celebrate the life of Saint John Baptist de La Salle (1651–1719), founder of the Christian Brothers, and our Lasallian heritage and mission.

This annual program includes opportunities for community building, education, service, celebration and recognition. Organized by the Mission & Ministry Center, the Office of Mission and a wide coalition of programs, departments and student leaders, De La Salle Week celebrates a Lasallian identity that spans more than 350 years and currently includes 1,000,000 students, 75,000 men and women, and 6,000 Christian Brothers in over 80 countries.

This year's theme is "Great Things are Possible: Deepening our Commitment to Justice" which is inspired by this year's worldwide Lasallian theme and marks Saint Mary's commitment to all forms of justice, especially environmental justice. A full calendar of events is coming soon, created in collaboration with a number of departments, clubs and student leaders, but a special shout out this year to the Sustainability Committee, Ann Drevno and student leaders working alongside her. Come join us as we proudly celebrate our Lasallian Heritage and Mission!

For more information, contact the Office of Mission at (925) 631-4406 or the Mission and Ministry Center at (925) 631-4366
