In 2019, we will commemorate the 300th anniversary of the death of St. John Baptist De La Salle. For the De La Salle Brothers and their Lay Partners, it is a pleasure to anticipate these festivities. We invite you to listen to the words of Brother Robert Schieler, Superior General, in which he calls us to join in the legacy conveyed to us by our Founder.
In our social network communications, we will use #300LaSalle.
We want to extend our appreciation to Antonio del Rosario and Jaker Leno of the Philippine Sector of the LEAD District for their assistance in creating our tercentenary logo and to Elizabeth Moors Jodice, Director of Communications for the Christian Brothers Conference, RELAN (Lasallian Region of North America), for her production and editing of the Superior General’s video.
Description du logo
Pope Francis once said, “we are pilgrims from death to fullness of life…” Saint John Baptist De La Salle, Patron Saint of Teachers, entered that fullness of life in 1719. During 2019 the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools will celebrate this 300th anniversary as the Year of Lasallian Vocations. The De La Salle Tercentenary logo is a circle that represents the fullness of life. Within the circle is the numeral 300 in an ascending appearance to symbolize the continuing vitality of the Institute and celebration of St. La Salle’s entry to the fullness of life.
The circle has openings rather than a closed curve. Each number in the 300 has openings rather than three separate numerals. The openings indicate how the Lasallian Mission is open to going beyond its own borders. They are like portals where Lasallians can easily break barriers in their own vocational journeys and be one with those living on the peripheries.
The theme text is placed around the circle to clearly define the tercentenary celebration. While death may have separated Lasallians from their Founder, the wrap text around the circle signifies how Lasallians worldwide continue to show much heart, commitment, and life that unites them all even more profoundly in the Lasallian Mission.
Blue is chosen to follow the Institute color.
