On Wednesday, April 19, 2017, the residence of the Brothers and Colegio La Salle in the city of Mérida, Venezuela, suffered damages caused by violence. The attackers ransacked part of the community and the school. They stole food from the refrigerators, took the cell phones and completely damaged three vehicles. Thankfully, the students, Partners and Brothers – Fredy, Lucas and Juan Bosco – are well.
We condemn every act of violence and pray for the just resolution of the situation in Venezuela as they search for peace, dialog, mercy and justice.
Let us pray for the welfare of our Brothers, students, Partners and all members of the Lasallian Family of Venezuela.
Brother Robert Schieler, FSC
