Summer 2019 • VOL. 4

Evangelization: Being God’s Message to Those We Serve by Mrs. Maryann Donohue-Lynch - Associate Executive Director, Office for Mission & Ministry Last year Saint Mary’s Press released a study that assesses the disaffiliation of young Catholics from the Church. It explores the reasons they have chosen to step away from their church community. The research indicates that one of the reasons some have drifted away is because of “a lack of companions on the spiritual journey.” When De La Salle established his first Christian school in 1679, it was a learning community based on the Gospel of Jesus Christ, where both teachers and students paused regularly each day to remember that they were in the holy presence of God. Not only did De La Salle provide religious formation for the students, but through his teacher formation program, he reminded the early Brothers that God

had called them “to this work” and to “Let the way you live be that of the Gospel.” (Meditations 84.3) During 2019 the Lasallian family celebrates a Jubilee Year in honor of Saint John Baptist de La Salle, the Patron Saint of Teachers. The words of the Founder, that God has called us to this work, still inspire the mission of providing a “human and Christian education to the young, especially the poor” that serves nearly one million young people each day in 80 countries. Today, much like De La Salle and the early Brothers did, Lasallians around the world consider how we can walk with students as they come to grow in their faith.

LASALLIAN NOTES

A MESSAGE FROM THE VISITOR Dear Lasallians, May this issue of Lasallian Notes find you enjoying the refreshment of this summer season. We continue to be in this special year of blessing, remembering the 300 years since our Founder’s death. A highlight happened in May when many Brothers had an audience with Pope Francis. At that time, he spoke that De La Salle’s “vision of the school led him to develop ever more clearly the belief that education is a right for everyone including the poor.” Throughout our District, we attempt to provide an excellent education for all, including those from the lower social classes. Throughout this issue, you will see that abundantly clear. I draw your attention to the 10th birthday of DENA which will be on September 9th. Over these ten years, so many positives have happened in the development of our District, which continues to serve well the mission for which our Founder founded us. In that same audience in May, the Pope spoke of the first teachers whom De La Salle gathered for the mission: “He devoted all his energy to their formation.” We in DENA continue to devote great energy for the ongoing formation of the successors to those first teachers— Lasallians throughout our 30 ministries.

DE LA SALLE

FUND

This summer alone, DENA has had hundreds of Lasallians in various formation programs: 10 in IALU (Rome program for university faculty and administration); 34 in the Buttimer Institute of Lasallian Studies at Manhattan College; another 34 in the new cohort of the John Johnston Institute of Contemporary Lasallian Practices; 11 participants in the Lasallian Social Justice Institute (New Orleans); some 125 students in the 25th annual Summer Lasallian Youth Assembly. Additionally, there have been formation programs for Board Chairs and new administrators. Finally, in this issue we complete our look at the four pillars of our first DENA Strategic Plan. This pillar, Evangelization, was also a concern mentioned by Pope Francis in May: “The forms for proclaiming the Gospel must be adapted to the concrete situations of various contexts.” We continue to work together to appropriately do so. With great gratitude, Bro. Dennis Lee, FSC Visitor/Provincial lee@fscdena.org

THE ST. JOHN BAPTIST DE LA SALLE FUND seeks to ensure that a Lasallian education is available and accessible to those students most in need. Through an initial program of student sponsorship and a growing program of grants to identified schools, the Fund provides tuition assistance for students to attend a Lasallian school. With your support, we are now providing $845,000 annually for our students in need. All are welcome to join the Brothers and their Partners-in-Mission in this specially-dedicated scholarship fund which continues to grow each year.

FACE OF THE FUND: HECTOR REYES San Miguel School of Washington by Mr. David Palank - Principal In 2016, we knew Hector Reyes had potential. Yet, as he admits, his patience was limited. “I used to be the type of person who wanted things to happen quickly,” he said. “I used to look for the easy way out.” Today, as he graduates from The San Miguel School of Washington, Hector reflected on how he has grown into a Miguel Man. “A Miguel Man is someone who helps others and shows the 12 Virtues of De La Salle.” When asked which virtue impacted him the most, he flashed a smile and responded, “Two virtues specifically, Gravity and Patience. I have learned to be serious in situations that require it. I am also now willing to challenge myself, not rush through tasks, and can wait for good things to come.” Good things have come for Hector, as he prepares to attend Gonzaga College High School next year! Hector’s older brother, Jason (San Miguel class of 2015), recently graduated from Archbishop Carroll High School. Hector says that both San Miguel and his brother’s success inspire and prepare him for high school. “I want to follow in his footsteps, be successful, graduate high school, and go to college like him. I also want to take advanced classes. I know it will not be easy. Thanks to the workload here, I know I will be prepared,” Hector said confidently. It is obvious that Hector has begun to realize his potential. Thanks to the St. John Baptist de La Salle Fund he has been able to build his foundation at San Miguel. We have faith that Hector will realize his dreams!

Papal Audience Commemorates 300 Year Jubilee

Pope Francis and Brother Robert Schieler, FSC, Superior General, exchange greetings during the Papal audience for Lasallians.

Superior General Brother Robert Schieler, FSC led a group of Lasallians that included four other Brothers from our District. The group represented all Lasallians worldwide at a private audience with Pope Francis to commemorate the third centenary of the Founder passing on to eternal life. The audience took place on Thursday, May 16th in Clementina Hall at the Vatican. During his presentation, Pope Francis encouraged the group, “May you always carry out your mission among the younger generations with renewed vigor, with that reforming boldness that characterized Saint John Baptist de La Salle.”

CELEBRATING MISSION In 2019, we commemorate both 300 years since Saint La Salle’s entry into eternal life, as well as our 10 year anniversary as the District of Eastern North America (DENA) (formed by the merging of the Baltimore, Long Island-New England, and New York Districts). In honor of these momentous occasions, we are hosting two special days. On September 9th, the day that DENA was born, we are encouraging all of our ministries, students, teachers, families, donors, and friends to join together in a District-wide day of community service. On November 8th, we will have our DENA Association Celebration, where our 30 ministries will gather geographically to share in a day of formation and association. Our Superior General, Brother Robert Schieler, FSC, is coming from Rome to join us and will be simulcast as our keynote presenter. We encourage you to learn more about this Jubilee Year and our District celebrations by visiting our website—bit.ly/JubileeYear2019—or by following #300LaSalle and #10DENA on social media!

BROTHER SPOTLIGHT Michael McKenery, FSC

Raised in a Catholic, Irish-Italian family in Rhode Island, I attended public schools through junior high school. Although accepted at Classical High School where many of my friends would be attending, my guidance counselor advised me that I would be attending La Salle Academy. It was my mother’s choice, so, La Salle it would be. I found the adjustment difficult at first. However, I made some new friends and performed well academically. In my eleventh year I began working part-time at Loews State Theatre as an usher. This is where I developed my love for movies and theater. During that year, Brother Patrick Kelly invited me to a weekend in Barrytown NY, the Juniorate for the Brothers. “Why me?” I thought, but I was encouraged by a friend who was also invited. I was very moved by this experience and decided to enter the Juniorate for senior year. Thus began my path to becoming a Christian Brother. While I am grateful for the time I have had at the various ministries I have served: St. Raphael Academy, La Salle Military Academy, the Provincialate, and La Salle Academy Providence, my greatest joy was always personally connecting with our students whenever possible, whether in the hallways, the cafeteria, or on the playing field. They have always brought the meaning to my work. I am now enjoying retirement, assisting in the Development Office at Christian Brothers Center in Narragansett, and looking forward to helping build our endowment to sustain the Center for the future. Br. Paul Goodwin, FSC (RIP) once addressed Brother Michael, “Thanks to your work and your inspiration, there is a great distance between the La Salle Academy you came to, a place already wonderful, and the LSA that you now leave, a place where even the wonders have wonders within them.”

BROTHER 2 BROTHER—AND A CARDINAL, TOO! Christian Brothers Academy in Lincroft NJ had the special honor of hosting Cardinal Joseph W. Tobin from the Archdiocese of Newark on March 29, 2019. Cardinal Tobin generously agreed to preside at Mass for the Academy. As an avid fan of exercise, he also blessed the CBA Colts’ fitness center afterward. Also joining in the school-wide Mass were elder Brothers from neighboring De La Salle Hall. CBA students from the Brother 2 Brother Club invited and accompanied the Brothers, and spent time together after Mass in food and fellowship. Realizing that the school is stronger because of the elder Brothers’ presence, Brother 2 Brother looks for association opportunities to include them in the CBA educational community.

Evangelization: Rodríguez Echeverría, FSC writes, “Young people are good news for the world, but we must ask ourselves how to make the Good News of Jesus become good news for them? In an era such as ours, in which young people are seeking something more and are open to spirituality, we need to educate them about meeting God in their inner selves.” Our mission regarding the young is to be companions on the search, humble guides who aid in the discovery of a path and in finding meaning in life. Rather than teachers who teach from above or judges who judge and condemn from outside, we are called to be brothers and sisters who mentor young people from the inside, sharing with them the basic experience of a God who is greater than our human understanding, but who, in Jesus of Nazareth, was manifested as someone who was close, tender, affective and devoted to the needy. In the New Evangelization young people are not only the future but also the present (and the gift) of the Church. They are not merely receivers but also agents of evangelization, especially among their peers. What is needed is that evangelizers meet with young people and spend time

with them; that they instruct and mentor them in the following of Jesus; that they guide them so that they discover their vocation in life and in the Church. Through this renewed focus on the ministry of evangelization, we continue the work of the Founder, to create educational communities in which young people have companions on their faith journey and can grow in their knowledge of themselves as a child of God. As a District, our evangelization efforts

also work with—and through—the adult members of our Lasallian family. This can be observed in our new evangelization initiatives: Faith Formation for Lasallian Educators is an online series of courses focused on the Catholic faith and tradition. Areas of study are based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church and Lasallian spirituality. Lasallian Spiritual Accompaniment Collaborative currently provides spiritual accompaniment for Heads of Ministries, and a variety of retreat programs for all Lasallians. Interfaith Dialogue is a one-week formation program exploring the great religions of the world with an emphasis on contemporary religious beliefs and practices. This will be offered in the summer of 2020. Finally, our evangelization also encompasses being the Gospel to those outside of our immediate Lasallian family who are most in need of our support. To this purpose, we have created an Advocacy Page on our District website to help guide efforts to protect the most vulnerable in our world. Through all of these efforts, we pray that we as a Lasallian family will be instruments of our God, to bring His Word, His Love, and His Peace to all.

MINISTRY SPOTLIGHT BISHOP LOUGHLIN MEMORIAL HIGH SCHOOL by Mr. Andrew Leary - Director of Communications

Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School, with an enrollment of 700 students, is one of the five largest Catholic schools in the Diocese of Brooklyn. Loughlin is proud of their graduation rate of 99%, with 97% typically going to college each year. In recent years, the school has witnessed both physical and academic renewal and growth. One of the most outstanding examples of this is its fast-growing and unique STEM program. The school has developed a reputation for excellence in the sciences—with many graduates becoming researchers, nurses, physicians, veterinarians, chemists, and beyond. In 2016, Loughlin expanded its robust curriculum to include Engineering and Biomedical Science through the nationally recognized program Project Lead The Way (PLTW). The program launched thanks to significant support from Pat & Art Ryan ‘59, and Bishop Loughlin fosters the individual strengths of each student. Toni & Jim Orenga ‘58.

AFRICA: A TWINNING REFLECTION by Br. Michael Andrejko, FSC - Director of Contacts

The 1982 song “Africa” by Toto, was written and sung by David Paich about his own musings on stories he was taught in Catholic school by missionaries who had been to Africa. I was a freshman in high school at that time and honestly it was just another hit on the radio. I was sure Africa was someplace I would never see.

Child Discovery Centre students and staff attending daily prayer.

However, that all changed last November when I was invited to join a week-long journey to visit our Lasallian schools in Africa that are “twinned” with schools here in our District. These schools rely on moral/prayerful support and donations from the students of their “twinned” Lasallian schools here in the USA. These ministries do all they can, but depend upon our support for survival. Such is the case with The Child Discovery Centre (CDC) in Nakuru Kenya. We visited this program, which is home for about 50 orphaned children; parents lost to illnesses like AIDS, or conflict and warfare. To reduce costs, the CDC grows its own food and cares for its farm animals. An important project that they are currently attempting to get off, or more appropriately, in the ground, is the installation of a well to provide clean drinking water! This will eliminate the need to purchase water, and possibly produce additional income. Clean water is a given in the USA, but not readily available in places like Kenya. When I hear the song “Africa” it brings me back to my trip and the children at our ministries like the Child Discovery Centre. The line “I bless the rains down in Africa” reminds me to pray for these children in hopes that this year we will be able to give these young people clean water to drink, free from disease and illness. Amen!

CBA Albany Alumnus Honored with Benefaction Mr. John D. Picotte, BFSC formally received his letters of Benefaction to the Brothers of the Christian Schools this spring. The award was bestowed at a surprise ceremony during his 60-year class reunion at Christian Brothers Academy in Albany NY. This is one of the two highest honors that can be received from the Brothers. From this day forward, he will be an honorary member of the Christian Brothers, and may display the BFSC after his name. He will also be remembered

in perpetuity in the daily prayers of all Brothers of the District. Mr. Picotte truly exemplifies what it means to be a life-long Lasallian. He has provided decades of service, professional advice, and financial support to the Brothers, his alma mater, and to the students they serve. One item of note is that for many years he has been providing scholarships to deserving students in need.

BROTHER ANDREW BARTLEY, FSC

BROTHER JAMES KELLY, FSC

1928 – 2019

1931 – 2019

Born James Joseph Bartley in 1928, Brother Andrew Bartley, FSC entered the Ammendale MD Novitiate at the age of 18 and received the Religious Habit and name, Elias Andrew. After pronouncing his Perpetual Vows in 1953, he served many schools throughout his home state of Pennsylvania, such as West Philadelphia Catholic High School for Boys, Trinity High School in Shiremanstown, La Salle College High School in Wyndmoor, and La Salle University in Philadelphia. Br. Andrew’s nephew, Christopher Mediano, recalled Br. Andrew’s bond with the Lasallian Community and how he considered his fellow educators and students his extended family. More than an educator, Mr. Mediano remembered Br. Andrew for the values he demonstrated in life, from his passions for cycling and tennis, to how normal activities like mealtime or bird-watching could invoke lessons of faith, about being together, and appreciating a moment. “Uncle Jim was a cornerstone to many,” said Mediano.

Brother James Kelly, FSC was born Daniel Patrick Kelly in 1931. He joined the Barrytown NY Juniorate in 1946 and the Novitiate in 1949. He received the Religious Habit and the name, Brother Aloysius James, and went on to pronounce his Perpetual Vows in 1956. One of his earliest accomplishments was a leadership position at the Saint Bernard’s Day Juniorate at 29 years old. He went on to fill several establishing roles, from the first Principal and Director at Paramus Catholic High School to first Director at De La Salle Hall, before serving 32 years at St. Peter’s Boys High School in Staten Island NY as teacher, Director, Principal, then President. Br. James was known both for his numerous hobbies, including photography, fishing, tennis, and basketball, as well as for his ability to instill a love of learning. “How did Jimmy Kelly relate so well with people? He loved them and respected them and mixed it all with his Kelly charm,” said Brother Jerome Sullivan, FSC.

Spring Formation Enriches Skills and Fellowship The District of Eastern North America is continuing our efforts to provide substantive and inspiring formation opportunities to our Partners working in our ministries. Here are two recent occasions of note. This spring the 2019 Lasallian Educators Workshop invited Guidance Counselors from our ministries throughout the District. During the three-day event, they heard expert presentations on the impact of how exposure to abuse, neglect, and household dysfunction affect youth in the school setting, then tied the Lasallian mission and approach to these pressing

issues in teenagers. They spent time in reflection on the theme “Lasallians: Hearts on Fire.” They also joined in small group settings discussing the most ethical and Lasallian approaches in addressing various youth issues. With 2019 being the 300th Jubilee year, as well as the tenth anniversary of our District, the Lasallian Animators from our ministries gathered with members of the Association for Lasallian Mission Committee (ALMC) for three days of work and fellowship. Their main efforts centered on strategizing and preparing for our District-wide Association Celebration, scheduled to take place on November 8th. They also took time to hear about the role of Animators in encouraging vocations, and ways to support young Lasallian professionals in our ministries.

Common Questions When Considering Special Gifts (part one) by Mr. Patrick J. Donahue - Director of Advancement

If you are reading this newsletter, it is probably because you care about the Christian Brothers and support them. More than likely, you also support one or more of our schools, and possibly several other charities. Therefore, in this and future issues, we will mention some common questions, misconceptions, etc. about giving. Some of these you may look at and say, “Well, of course!” Maybe others will make you say, “I didn’t think of that.” What is a Charitable Gift Annuity? I have many times been told, “I would like to make a special gift, but I am worried about having income in my later years.” An annuity can be a simple answer. The Brothers of this District (DENA) now have the ability to offer Gift Annuities. A gift annuity is a simple one or two page contract that basically says that the donor (single or couple) will gift the charity a certain amount, and receive a percentage paid back annually for the rest of their life. It is usually a generous percentage, based on your age and a standard rate set by the government. When should I make a gift of stock? It is quite common

for a donor, even a business-savvy one, to make a generous gift by writing a check, without considering whether a stock gift would be more beneficial for his or her tax purposes. If you have greatly appreciated stock (worth much more now than you paid for it), you can transfer the stock to a charity. You will pay no capital gains, and can take a write-off for the full current value of the gift. (Hint: If you think the stock will continue to grow, you can re-purchase the same amount. Now your cost-basis will be at today’s value.) If you have questions or would like to discuss any of these ideas further, please feel free to contact me, Patrick Donahue, at (732) 380-7926, ext. 112, or at donahue@fscdena.org. Please know that my hints here are not intended to be legal advice. I always suggest that before you finalize any charitable gift plan, you should consult your advisors to make sure it is right for your specific circumstance. In upcoming issues we will discuss wills & bequests, gifts from Individual Retirement Accounts, Donor Advised Funds, the use of beneficiary designations, and more.

Dear friends, Over the past four decades, I have had the privilege of working with many wonderful Catholic education and youth service organizations. Most are affiliated with a specific religious order or diocese. Almost all talk about their unique charisms. There were always documents we were given to help us understand, and phrases we used to encapsulate the mission. However, I never encountered a group that makes such an effort as the Christian Brothers to ensure that every teacher, administrator, employee and Board member understands and takes to heart the mission that is ours to make happen. Perhaps that is because our Founder was the one who basically invented the educational system as it is known today. Or because he was the first to provide complete, useful education to the poor—giving them the chance to raise themselves out of poverty. Maybe it is because we are doing, and want to continue, the traditions that began more than 300 years ago. (I just learned that in the first schools, De La Salle insisted that instructors and students would pause regularly throughout the day to remember that they were in the Holy presence of God. Sound familiar?) The Brothers provide many unique formation opportunities for our various constituencies, as you may notice as you read Brother Visitor’s letter on page two and the Spring Formation article inside. I myself recently completed year one of the Buttimer Institute of Lasallian Studies, but that gives me so much I wish to share that it will have to wait until another issue. Please just know that the Brothers, and every one of us that work or volunteer with the Brothers, feel honored to play a part in continuing and fostering our rich Lasallian educational mission. Sincerely,
