PARC Educational Mission Assembly

From 4 to 6 August 2019 the PARC Educational Missional Assembly gathered in Manila, Philippines. The Assembly is the preparatory committee for the 3rd International Assembly of the Lasallian Education Mission (AIMEL 2020), which will take place in Rome. 

I was privileged to accept the invitation which came from Brother Visitor David Hawke FSC and Merv McCormack (Executive Director, Lasallian Mission Council) to be the Australian delegate to take part in the first PARC Mission Assembly. The gathering of 12, representing the different districts/delegation of PARC, and the Visitors and Auxiliary Visitors were also humbled by the presence of Superior General Br Robert Schieler FSC throughout the Assembly. 

While in Manila, the main objectives of the assembly were to evaluate the implementation of the decisions of AIMEL 2013 and propose future lines of action for the Association and the Mission of the 46th General Chapter. Guiding the discussions were the themes; 

  • Identity,
  • Vitality and
  • Transformation.

As delegates, we worked together, energised by the dialogue, allowing the spirit to guide our reflections, thoughts and sharing. We left hopeful, knowing that the Lasallian Institute will continue to achieve great things if we remain, and are always, together and by association.
