This year, the Community of the San José House of Formation in Guatemala comprises twelve Brothers: two staff and twelve young Brothers in formation. These Brothers and a few other teachers have begun the year with lots of hope and enthusiasm, determined to deepen the call they have received from Jesus through St Jean-Baptiste de La Salle. The year will be focused on getting to know more deeply what is the essence of consecration, the various nuances of our charism and the way in which we bring the gospel to the world of education, with passion for God and passion for humanity.
