The Council would like to thank Mr. Lorenzo Cutore and Mrs. Cristina Cosa for their service on the RYLC and welcomed Ms.Claudia Dimiscã as she joined the team.

The RYLC agenda included the final preparations for the international course for young Lasallian professionals to be held at La Salle Pastoral Centre in Castletown in Ireland between 2nd to 9th August, 2017.  This programme’s focus is Lasallian Spirituality in the 21st Century: One Call, Many Voices. The Council has also worked on the development of the formation programme for summer 2018 that will focus on the theme of the year, Lasallian without Limits, and possible initiatives for Lasallian Year of Vocations in summer 2019.

During this meeting, the RYLC also looked into strategies to strengthen its participation and support for the projects and initiatives of the International Young Lasallian Council (ICYL), especially the International Lasallian Days for Peace for 2017.  This was also the first opportunity for the RELEM Young Lasallian Council to start reflecting on the Synod on Youth and the ways in which it might contribute to the Institute’s reflection on this important topic.

Dear Lasallians

I know that you will join me in offering our prayers and best wishes, to Brother José Román on his appointment by Brother Superior as the new Visitor of the District of ARLEP. He will assume his new responsibilities in September when the mandate of Brother Jesús Miguel officially ends. I take this opportunity, too, to thank Brother Jesús Miguel for his excellent work of animation and leadership during his two terms as Visitor of ARLEP.

I also take this opportunity to thank the District of ARLEP for the very successful conference on the Culture of Vocations which took place in El Escorial last week and for the invitation  to other Districts in RELEM to join more than 240 participants in reflecting on this key element on the future of the Lasallian ministry in Europe.

Fraternally,

RELEM Conference of Visitors

From January 16th to 20th the RELEM Conference of Visitors took place in Borg-El-Arab which is located about 45 kilometers from the city of Alexandria, Egypt. Br Fadi and District of Proche Orient hosted the conference and all the logistical details were superbly coordinated by the Director of the impressive St Marc’s College in Alexandria, Mr Waguih Hanna, who accompanied the Visitors throughout the Conference.

As many of you will know, the St Marc’s College is located in the centre of Alexandria but the College also has a beautiful Conference/Retreat Centre outside the city, at Borg-El-Arab, and it was there that the Conference took place. The hospitality and the welcome was exquisite and this, along with the tranquility of the centre, created an ideal environment for the Brother Visitors of RELEM to reflect on significant issues affecting the Region and the Institute.

The Conference opened with a video message from Brother Superior General, Robert Schieler, in which he highlighted a number of important issues that the Region of RELEM, like the rest of the Institute, is currently facing. These included the continuity of the Lasallian mission into the future, with appropriate formation programmes for our Lay colleagues to ensure effective leadership of that mission, the development of effective vocation promotion programmes, the care and support of our older Brothers, and the protection of the patrimony of the Institute to support the mission. These issues were taken up during different sessions of the Conference along with some specific issues raised by the Visitors themselves. These included a reflection on community animation, the use of the Internet in community, and a pastoral approach to abuse.

One of the key decisions taken by the Visitors was to approve the procedures for the first RELEM MEL Assembly scheduled for October 2018 with the nomination of District participants to be finalized by the end of May 2017.

As is customary during these meetings, the Visitors took advantage of their visit to experience something of the local Lasallian reality. In this case it took the form of a visit to the College of St Marc in Alexandria where the Visitors had the opportunity to see some of the many varied opportunities offered to the students in the magnificent facilities of the College.

Additionally, on the final evening of the Conference, the Visitors had the opportunity to meet with the MEL Council of the Sector of Egypt and discuss the scope of the Lasallian mission throughout the District. The Visitors were also able to see something of the religious treasures of Egypt with a visit to the impressive Coptic monastery of St Pishoy which dates back to the 4th century.
