ST. JOHN BAPTIST DE LA SALLE - OUR PATRON SAINT
Our story started with one man and one dream, three centuries ago.
The man - John Baptist De La Salle - was born to a wealthy family in Rheims, France on April 30, 1651. The dream - education for the poor. John Baptist De La Salle believed that education gave hope and opportunity for men to lead better lives of dignity and freedom which all men deserve as children of God.
De La Salle was a man refined manner, a cultured mind, and a great practical ability, in whom personal prosperity was balanced with kindness and affability. He lived in times not unlilke our own, where society is characterized by the great disparity between the rich and the poor and where the few who are rich control the lives of the many who are poor, hopeless, and powerless.
Disturbed by the disparity he saw and felt around him, and firmly believing that all men ought to live lives more fitting for them as children of God, De la Salle devoted himself to the education of the poor, starting with recruiting young men who were out of work, training them to become good Christian teachers right in his own home, and later on transferring to other sites when his family and friends refused to accept his "recruits"; into their homes.
Convinced that he could serve God more devotedly and concentrate on his mission more dedicatedly as a religious, De la Salle consecrated himself to God and finally became a priest at the age of 27.
Despite the strong objections and criticisms from his family and friends, he pursued his mission with relentless perserverance and determination and unflagging faith and zeal, leading him to found the Brothers of Christian Schools in 1684, when he was only 33 years old. Through the education of the poor and the Christian formation of the youth, De La Salle led the way in establishing charity schools and teacher training colleges all over.
Today, after over 300 years, the La Salle Brothers number approximately 7,500, continue serving the youth in schools, colleges, universities, and other related endeavors in 80 countries througout the world.
