About to District of Antilles Mexico – South
On January the 1st, 2008, after six years of meetings and discussions, thousands of Lasallians from Cuba, Florida, the United States, Haiti, Mexico, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic received the news of the establishment of the District of Antilles-South Mexico. These territories, which had already been linked at the beginning of the 20th century, were brought
together to form a dynamic, multicultural, multiethnic and multilingual District.
Twelve years later, the Lasallian trail now runs through the southern part of Mexico and several Caribbean countries, giving life to 52 educational works, including nine universities, which receive almost 105,000 students. 143 Brothers and 8,000 collaborators are in charge of this educational mission and, in a spirit of fraternity and association, they concretize daily the Lasallian slogan of educating those who have less. The District also has three health centres
that can serve 50,000 people, many of them poor, during the period 2018-2019.
