This paper proposes as its starting point both reflection and discernment about the question of “what is essential to Lasallian association?” and develops along the lines of understanding association as a journey: the journey of De La Salle and the early Brothers, the journey of the Institute since Vatican Council II, and the journey of Lasallian Bothers and Partners going forward together into a future full of promise.
Keywords: association, Lasallian Family, journey, Reign of God, vocation, attentive listening, mission, Holy Spirit, People of God, Brother, Lasallian Partner
