Dear Lasallians,

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Brother Rey Mejias as Coordinating Secretary of the Secretariat for Formation

In addition to his personal qualities, Brother Rey brings to his new mission a long experience as a formator and administrator. As head of this Secretariat, he will continue the challenging work of institutional implementation of the new formation document “Lasallian Formation for Mission: the Pilgrim’s Handbook”, on which he is working on his doctoral thesis.

Rey is a Filipino Brother from the Lasallian East Asia District (LEAD) who has held administration and leadership positions in the areas of formation, vocation ministry, school and community administration in the Philippines and Hong Kong. To take on this responsibility, Rey leaves the leadership of the PARC Regional Novitiate.

Brother Rey will assume his new position in September 2021, replacing Brother Robert “Bobby” Schaefer after five years of generous and creative service. On behalf of the Institute, we thank Brother “Bobby” for his leadership and performance in his work, and we welcome Brother Rey.

Br. Jorge Gallardo de Alba, FSC
