Brothers Energize Their Lasallian BASE to Foster Vocations by Brother Richard Galvin, FSC, Auxiliary Visitor
Strengthening our BASE
B - Brothers’ Vocation A - Association/Formation S - Service of the Poor E - Evangelization After a year of planning, Vision 2020+ has been rolled out and is in the process of being implemented. The “B” in BASE—Brothers’ Vocation—has legs and is walking among Lasallians in the District of Eastern North America (DENA)! Having been a Brother for thirty-four years, I am happy and proud to be part of this experience. The foundation of my vocation as a young man was filled with relationships which inspired me to discern the life of a De La Salle Christian Brother. I was blessed to have excellent teachers at St. Raymond High School for Boys who motivated me to consider the vocation of teaching, not only by what they said but by
their example. Likewise, I was blessed by the presence of Brothers who gave witness to me as dedicated men of faith combining their efforts with lay colleagues to provide a human and Christian education to the young people entrusted to their care. Yes indeed, relationships are a key component and a motivating factor in the development of vocations. The overarching strategic priority of this pillar is to embolden all Lasallians to take an intentional role in the promotion of a culture of vocations in our ministries. Brothers Michael Andrejko, FSC, and Francis Eells, FSC, vocation directors, created a tip-card for teachers with an accompanying video. These tips (see list on page 3) are being introduced to faculties during the fi first rst part of the school year. year It is meant to assist and encourage all Lasallians as they accompany young men and women to consider their vocations, especially a vocation to the Brothers of the Christian Schools. Four
Vocation Summits are being held throughout the 2018–2019 school year in different geographic areas of our District. These summits will provide an opportunity for high school age students to be engaged on the topic of vocation. The highlight here is that personal invitations to these events will be offered by classroom teachers who have interacted with these young people on a daily basis. Relationships! Our District has been blessed by the arrival of Brother Arturo Martinez, FSC. Br. Arturo is on loan to us from the District of AntillesSouth Mexico. He has joined our vocation team and is collaborating closely with Br. (continued on page 3)

A MESSAGE FROM THE VISITOR Dear Lasallians, In mid-October, it appeared that Autumn would never arrive, but surely our weather patterns in recent years have become predictably unpredictable. What has been happily predictable throughout these ﬁrst ten years of the District of Eastern North America (DENA) is the outstanding and varied ministries, the commitment of dedicated Lasallian professionals, the support of friends and sponsors, and the incredible young lives being transformed daily. Among the inspiring stories contained within this issue is the tale of three Brothers who entered the novitiate together 70 years ago in Aurora Ontario. Three score and ten years later, they are one-third of the Brothers who comprise our contingent of Canadian Brothers in DENA. As we mentioned in our last issue, YOU are christened a vocation promoter. As Brother Richard mentions in the cover article here, “It is important for all Lasallians to know that they are empowered to be vocation promoters.” YOU can invite any young man who has the good qualities you see in us Brothers to consider if God might be calling him/them to the Brothers. Maybe 70 years from now, we will have new

DE LA SALLE
trios of Brothers celebrating a lifetime of joyous service to our Lasallian world. I would like to seize this moment to thank Patrick Donahue and a talented team who work on behalf of promoting our mission to the wider society. It is often noted that we Lasallians are too humble and modest. So thanks to all those shouting out of the blessing that Lasallians are to our world. This quarterly magazine exudes the excellence and great work being done in every sector of DENA. I am in awe of the magniﬁcent work being done in each classroom, agency, athletic ﬁeld, etc. It is not surprising at all. Weather patterns may be less predictable, but Lasallian excellence is a steady hallmark of every ministry of DENA. Live Jesus in our hearts! Respectfully
Bro. Dennis Lee, FSC Visitor/Provincial
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 $780,000 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: YOSIEL BONILLA The San Miguel School of Providence RI by Ms. Kimberly Martel - Development & Communications Associate Yosiel Bonilla is now a member of the 6th grade class at The San Miguel School of Providence (grades 5 through 8). Blessed with a creative mind and courageous spirit, he quickly excelled as a student and athlete during his ﬁrst year. Following in the footsteps of two older siblings, Johansel (’17) and Anderson (’20), he embraced the many characteristics of a Miguel Man. “Being a Miguel Man means to step up and help out when someone is hurt or struggling.” says Yosiel. “At San Miguel we are taught to be respectful, responsible, and kind—to both ourselves and others.” Like many of his classmates, Yosiel is being raised by his mother in the heart of Providence. Though faced regularly with obstacles and forced to navigate challenging conditions, he chose to enter San Miguel with a positive attitude and enthusiastic spirit. During his 5th grade year, Yosiel achieved honor roll, earned a position on the San Miguel baseball team, and became the only student to defeat Executive Director, John Wolf, in chess. He attributes this growth to the security and support he feels while at school. “When I think of San Miguel it makes me feel safe. The people here want the best for you, and that makes you want the best for yourself, too.” With his bright mind and determination to succeed, Yosiel has many plans for a positive future. He aspires to carry on his Lasallian education at La Salle Academy, also in Providence, where the values of faith, service, and community will continue to be embraced. Thanks to the St. John Baptist de La Salle Fund, Yosiel and so many other students have the opportunity to actualize their truest potential.
LASALLIAN NOTES (continued from page 1)
Brothers Energize Their Lasallian BASE to Foster Vocations Francis Eells. Br. Arturo has quickly acclimated to our district and has begun to deliver vocation presentations in freshman religion classes. He will pursue involvement with OLAS, a club that promotes Latino Culture at La Salle University as well as The Camino Program at Manhattan College, designed for native Spanish speakers. Br. Arturo also plans to visit our four San Miguel middle schools to interact with students and explore ways to integrate with parent groups. Relationships! Another goal of the Brothers’ Vocation strategic pillar is to invite and engage postcollege aged men and young professionals in the vocation discernment process. Brother Edward Shields, FSC, has joined our vocation team and is working primarily in the area of promoting older vocations. Outreach has begun to young adult groups, Knights of Columbus vocation coordinators, and military chaplains who are responsible for organizing career days. Br. Edward is also connecting with alumni from our ministries who are in their mid-twenties to early thirties. “Invite the Inviter” is another new initiative. Participating ministries will host a meeting for faculty, staff, parents, or board members—maybe all of the above! Those gathered will be encouraged to become “inviters.” It is important for all Lasallians to know that they are empowered to be vocation promoters. Yes, vocation awareness is about inviting and encouraging young people to be open to God’s call. This pillar of the strategic plan is meant to encourage all Lasallians to become more intentional in this regard, being attentive and supportive in conversation with those who might be inclined to discern a vocation. Relationships! There is much work to do but the B in BASE certainly has us on the right road. And of course, we thank you for continuing to pray for vocations. Are there other ways you might also consider helping? For more information or questions about vocations, contact Br. Fran Eells, Vocation Director, at email@example.com.

ENCOURAGING LASALLIAN VOCATIONS Tips for Teachers Encourage young people who are: • Attracted to community service. Individuals whom you notice think first in terms of teamwork or the good of the whole. • Balanced and have good common sense. • Active in their parishes, religious services at school, and/or have an exceeding grasp on religious and spiritual topics. Additionally, include young people who are active in campus ministry/Lasallian Youth activities. • In your classroom. Even if you do not teach religion, this could be as simple as praying for vocations regularly. Share your vocation story as a teacher/husband/wife. Invite colleagues to share their vocation journey and stories. Follow these tips before inviting: • Many young people will say that one of the reasons they never considered religious life is because nobody ever asked or encouraged them. • Realize the distinction, and the differences, between a religious vocation as Brother/Sister and the call to be a Priest/Deacon. They are distinct callings. • Be sincere in your approach. • Ask for the opinions, resources, experience, and knowledge of others— colleagues, vocation directors, Brothers in your school, and Brothers visiting your ministry—as a sounding board. • Share information about young men/women who might have a Lasallian vocation, especially an interest in the life of a Brother.
CELEBRATION OF BROTHER’S VOCATION July 2018 closed with a District-wide celebration of Brotherhood. Christian Brothers, Lasallian partners, family and friends gathered for Mass at Saint Mary’s Church in Colts Neck NJ to honor our twentyeight Jubilarians for their 1,500 collective years of service to the Institute. The festivities continued with a luncheon hosted by Christian Brothers Academy in Lincroft NJ. Our Brother Novices Steven Barbaro and Paul Avvento were also welcomed home, completing their year of discernment in the Regional Novitiate in Chicago. During the Jubilee celebration these two Brothers made their vows for the very first time, and were joined by Br. David Deradoorian, who renewed his temporary vows with them. Together with the Jubilarians, all of the Brothers deepened their commitment to the Lasallian educational mission. Special celebrations were also held for our senior Brothers who were unable to attend the event. At our Brothers District nursing home, De La Salle Hall in Lincroft NJ, nearly 100 Brothers joined our three Jubilarians in residence for a special Mass and barbeque. Also, for a very special occasion, our Visitor, Brother Dennis Lee, FSC, and Auxiliary Visitor, Brother Thomas Casey, FSC, traveled to Loretto Abbey in Toronto Canada to join the District’s Canadian Brothers. This Jubilee Mass and reception honored Brothers George Edwards, FSC, Francis McCrea, FSC, and Nicholas Zimrose, FSC. This trio entered novitiate together, and are still together celebrating 70 years of Brotherhood. Congratulations to all of our Jubilarians!

TWO MEN PROFESS FIRST PROMISES During the Jubilee Celebration Mass on July 28th in Lincroft, J.D. Macioce and Kyle Mena, who have both been part of the Brothers’ Contact Program, took the next step in their discernment, by formally requesting entrance into the District’s Postulancy. The two recited First Promises as part of their Rite of Acceptance into the Postulancy. Brother Richard Buccina, FSC, Jeremy House and Postulancy Community Director, warmly received and welcomed Macioce and Mena into the program. They were presented with St. La Salle medals and The Brother’s Rule, symbols of this progression in their discernment journey. They will spend the next year continuing their education to be teachers and Brothers, living in community, and serving at Lasallian ministries in the Philadelphia area, including West Catholic Preparatory High School and La Salle College High School.
New Postulants Kyle Mena and J.D. Macioce, here with Brother Richard Buccina, FSC, profess their First Promises to Brothers of the Christian Schools.
BROTHER SPOTLIGHT Robert Schieler, FSC
“One of the many gifts of our lives as Brothers is the freedom to be available for new assignments. A change of assignment to a new school, a new ministry or a new community is more than a change of location. It is an opportunity to discover new gifts that we may have been previously unaware of until we are challenged to come out of ourselves; to grow both in our personhood and in our faith; to recognize that happiness is found in serving others and serving with others. It is to experience the truism that in giving we receive. I am grateful for God’s successive calls throughout my life, for the many people whom I’ve encountered and who inspired me by the generous example of their lives and vocations, and for the many Brothers I’ve been privileged to know, live and walk with.” Br. Robert was first introduced to the Christian Brothers as a student at West Catholic in Philadelphia PA. During his 50 years as a member of the Institute, Brother Robert has served throughout the District, and the worldwide Institute. In 2014, Br. Robert became the 27th successor to St. John Baptist de La Salle when he was elected Superior General, the first from the District of Eastern North America! “Serving as Superior these past four years I have witnessed the vitality of the Lasallian mission on all five continents. Classrooms and centers are open for the poor and the marginalized, students and Lasallian volunteers are challenging us elders to be the Church Jesus called us to be. Lasallian Partners are making personal sacrifices each day to live the vocation of ‘touching hearts’ and Brothers of all ages are modeling fraternity to an increasingly intolerant world. Our vocation is to touch the hearts of our students. Across the years, my heart has been touched by so many students and young people who entered my life. As is so often the case, we are taught by those to whom we are sent to instruct.”
Letters of Affiliation Bestowed In September 2017, at Christian Brothers Center in Narragansett RI, long time Lasallians Yvette & John Connell were Affiliated to the Institute. The letter from the Lasallian Community at Bedford Park, requesting Affiliation for the Connells, states: “Two characteristics of Lasallians are their humble embrace of vulnerable families, and their willingness to go beyond borders. This humility is emphasized by saying that Lasallian men and women serve ‘with’ the poor more than provide services ‘to’ the poor. Jack and Yvette Connell epitomize these characteristics.” In June 2018, for her more than 30 years of Lasallian service to the young men and the staff of La Salle School for Boys in Albany, Ms. Anne Moscinski became an Affiliated Member of the Institute. In the letters of recommendation for Anne’s affiliation, the Brothers of La Salle School cited her steadfast commitment to the mission and to the young men of the school: “Her commitment is unquestioned. Anne takes a personal interest in each student in our care and the Brother Edward Phalen, FSC, welcomes particular follow-up services needed to support them Mrs. Ann Moscinski, joined here by her husband Yvette and John Connell as newly Michael, is presented with Letters of Affiliation by after they leave.” Affiliated Members of The Institute. Brother Dennis Lee, FSC, Visitor.
DE LA SALLE COLLEGIATE HIGH SCHOOL Service is Always in Season By Ms. Vicki Granger – Editor, The Collegiate, the DLS Alumni Magazine After the last exam given, the last textbook returned, the last locker closed, most students plan a summer of relaxation, college visits, and part-time jobs. For the more than 700 De La Salle Collegiate High School students in Warren MI, summer means service. Whether with one of the school clubs, teams, classes, or individually, these young men take to heart the teachings of our Founder on service to those in need. This is one of the common bonds that connect De La Salle men. Two examples of groups that may externally appear different, but that share this bond are the football team and the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. Both of these groups took time to live out the Lasallian mission within urban Detroit, at programs like Summer in the City, that connects groups with projects that foster and positively engage urban youths. Among other things, the varsity football team, spearheaded by team captain Jacob Dobbs, also jumped at the chance to help when they heard that Debbie and John Schmid were looking to hire someone to do lawn and yard maintenance. John, who taught at De La Salle for 37 years, is now battling ALS. Said Dobbs, “Mr. Schmid spent so many years helping students. We saw this as an opportunity to give back to him.” Students in the DLS International Bac-
calaureate Program also have volunteered regularly throughout the summer. There are currently 32 juniors and seniors in this rigorous, two-year curriculum. Developed for the children of diplomats in the 1960’s, the curriculum is now internationally recognized. Students are responsible for demonstrating mastery at the end of each course, similar to a dissertation defense. De La Salle is one of only two Catholic schools in Michigan to offer the IB Brother Patrick McNally, FSC, and all of the Brothers at De La Salle Collegiate, enjoy catching up with students between classes.

Welcome to our Newest District Staff Members The Provincialate Office is proud to announce Ms. Kerry M. Conroy as Associate Director of the Office for Mission and Ministry. Ms. Conroy stepped into the new position on September 1, 2018. An eighteen-year Lasallian educator, Ms. Conroy had served at La Salle Academy in New York City since 1999. She began as a Lasallian Volunteer, and subsequently held positions of advancing responsibility, leading to her most recent role as Principal and Vice President for Academic Affairs. Stated Kerry, “I am excited to take on this new endeavor in furthering the mission of St. La Salle with our ministries throughout the District. I am grateful for all my experiences at La Salle Mrs. Janice Shea Ms. Kerry M. Conroy Academy, which have ultimately prepared me for the path ahead.” Our office is also pleased to welcome Mrs. Janice Shea to the District of Eastern North America staff. Starting this past June, Janice brings corporate experience as well as a non-profit and diocesan background to her new position as the Personal Assistant to the Visitor, Brother Dennis Lee, FSC. “I was delighted to be selected for the position with the District Office,” said Janice. “I believe being involved in good works that help others is important. It’s especially important to me, and I’m excited to learn more about and help foster the Lasallian mission.”
GALA SUPPORTS RETIRED BROTHERS Once again the Gala Committee for the annual event to support the retired Brothers at Christian Brothers Center in Narragansett RI hosted one of their most exciting and successful Galas ever. The casually-elegant evening began with a cocktail hour and live auction in the courtyard. (God had a little fun, chasing us inside with a rain shower for the last ten minutes of the auction.) Dinner followed in the dining room, then it was into the Great Room for desserts, cordials and announcement of the grand raffle winners to end the evening. We sincerely thank all those who participated, attended, or donated auction items.
Brother Robert Wickman, FSC, is surrounded by friends Teri & Michael Sullivan and Robert & Sally Kane.

Mr. Anthony J. Colucci, Jr., AFSC
While our Lasallian community is always saddened at the loss of one of our close friends, this summer we saw the passing of three icons of our Affiliated Members, Mr. Anthony J. Colucci, Jr., AFSC, Mr. Joseph J. Gerngross, Sr., AFSC, and Rev. Erwin H. Schweigardt, AFSC. Affiliated Membership is the highest honor that the Institute of The Brothers of the Christian Schools can offer an individual. This designation, given for decades of close dedicated service to the Brothers, must be applied for by a local Brothers’ Community, approved by our District, and conferred upon the individual by our Generalate in Rome. Among other things, the Affiliated Member of the Institute has the right to call himself or herself Brother. Each of these three men exemplifies the definition of Affiliation. Although from various areas of our District, each graduated from a Lasallian school, and spent their adult lives supporting multiple Lasallian ministries, as well as the Brothers of the District. Each had a different vocation: law, mechanical contracting, and clergy. However, we were blessed by each with their loyalty, professional advice, Board and committee leadership, philanthropic support, and friendship.

ADDRESS SERVICE REQUESTED
Dear friends, I am excited to welcome you to the first merged quarterly District newsletter. We have been making great efforts to keep in touch with you while reducing the amount of duplication of efforts. Our offices are now more closely coordinating stewardship and outreach to you, our friends and supporters. Merging our two District publications, Lasallian Notes and Lasallian Visions, is one of the final and one of the largest steps in this process. The amazing Brother William Martin, FSC, who was single-handedly producing Notes, will still be on our editorial team for our combined newsletter. He also is still running our Mass Card program through the St. La Salle Auxiliary. In addition, Brother Peter Furlong, FSC, has agreed to join our team to help with stewardship. We have tried to keep the most popular pieces from both newsletters. If you were receiving Notes, you will still see familiar items such as the lists of recent and memorial donors, and updates on senior Brothers. Those of you who have been receiving Visions will still see our regular Ministry Spotlight, Brother Spotlight, and Face-of-the-Fund sections. We hope that everyone will enjoy both the familiar and new. We thank each of you for your continued prayers and financial support for the Christian Brothers, their ministries, and the youths they serve. Sincerely,
Support the Brothers Use our beautiful Mass Cards For Christmas Shepherds in the Field Hector Garrido
