Lasallian call to help Ukrainian Refugees   28/03/2022

In response to the grave events taking place in Europe today the Brother Superior General has invited all Lasallian schools to dedicate this Lenten season to humanitarian aid for refugees from Ukraine.
 
Lasallian schools in Europe are mobilising to give support to the refugees, so the Lasallian community have decided to launch a fundraising appeal for this emergency action.

Please see below a copy of the letter attached from our Brother Superior General and for details on how to donate. This letter is attached here: EN_Appeal_LaSalleForUkrainians.pdf

It reads:
02 March 2022

Dear Brothers, Partners and all Members of the Lasallian Family,

Grant us, O Lord, we pray,
That the course of our world
May be directed by your peaceful rule….

Let us pray that the spirit of peace and reconciliation inspires our prayer, our thoughts, and our behavior as
together we begin our Lenten journey. As women and men who proclaim Jesus Christ, we are called to be
witnesses to fraternity and to build communities of mutual support and tolerance. Today more than ever
we must be instruments of reconciliation and bearers of the bright light of Christian hope. We must work
together with all people of good will to dispel the clouds of darkness and banish the winds of war.
I recall the Pope Francis’ words as the fury of war wreaks havoc in the Ukraine:

'Lent is a favorable time to seek out – and not to avoid – those in need; to reach out – and not to
ignore – those who need a sympathetic ear and a good word; to visit – and not to abandon – those
who are lonely. Let us put into practice our call to do good to all, and take time to love the poor and
needy, those abandoned and rejected, those discriminated against and marginalized.'

I invite all Lasallians to support “La Salle for Ukrainians” as a concrete way to reach out to our sisters and
brothers who are seeking refuge from war. Information about how to show our love and support
accompanies this letter.
As we prepare to celebrate Easter, let us redouble our efforts to be builders of peace, witnesses to
reconciliation and brightly shining beacons of hope. Let us raise our voices, and in the words of Pope Paul
VI, shout from the rooftops “No more war, war never again!”

Fraternally,
Brother Robert Schieler, FSC
