Christian Brothers at La Salle
La Salle has been the home of the Christian Brothers since 1886. It served as the provincial office and the house of formation and studies for young men discerning to become Christian Brothers. Since 1977, smaller communities of Christian Brothers have lived at La Salle and served in the ministry of retreat work.
The De La Salle Christian Brothers are a group of lay religious men devoted to education. St. John Baptist De La Salle, a French priest, established the Christian Brothers in 1680. De La Salle became completely devoted to the education of children, especially those of lesser means, and to the training of those who taught them.
