Dear Brothers and Lasallians, 

I write to share with you the sudden and sad news on the demise of Br Daniel Carlin who was found unresponsive in his room this morning, 31st August, 2023. As you may know Br Daniel is from Ireland and was working in the Sector of Ethiopia, serving as the principal of St Joseph school in Addis Ababa. Currently schools are on recess until mid-September.

We indeed condole with the Sector of Ethiopia and the District of Great Britain, Ireland and Malta on the loss of such a great missionary from your District, who has served our District in various capacities in different ministries for many years including De La Salle Center and Christ the Teacher Institute in Nairobi. 

Kindly pray for his good soul and for consolation of his loved ones. 

May the soul of Br Daniel Carlin, and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace!

Dear members of the Lasallian family,

It is with great pleasure that we announce the Regional Assembly of the Lasallian Region of Africa (RELAF). This Assembly, the seventh of its kind, will be held in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, from April 2 to 5, 2023.

The participants in this Assembly are the Brother Visitors, Brother President, Brother Auxiliary Visitor, Brother Sector Coordinators, Brother Directors of formation houses and Higher Institutions, delegates of our Districts and Delegation, Presidents of Commissions, members representing the Young Brothers, Young Lasallians and CIAMEL. Over three days, they will reflect on the life of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools in the countries that makes up RELAF, and then lay out the pathways for the next seven years in the light of the 46th General Chapter.

We invite you to join us in prayer so that through the Holy Spirit we may build new paths that transform lives. May the Blessed Virgin Mary, Saint John Baptist de La Salle, Blessed Brother Raphael-Louis Rafiringa and all the Saints and Blessed of the Institute intercede for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts, forever!
