Christian Brothers and the Lasallian Tradition
SJHS is a Lasallian school and a part of the Christian Brothers Midwest District.
The Brothers of the Christian Schools, known as the De La Salle Christian Brothers, are members of one of the largest worldwide societies in the Roman Catholic Church. St. Jean Baptist de La Salle in France founded the order in 1680 for the purpose of providing a Christian education for youth. For more than three hundred years, in over eighty countries, the Christian Brothers have conducted elementary and secondary schools along with colleges and universities.Currently, in the United States, nearly 2,000 Christian Brothers are involved in educational enterprises representing 75 high schools, several middle schools and seven colleges and universities. Alumni of Lasallian schools have traditionally shared a common bond of unity and pride through the years.
- The first paragraph is specific to SJHS. The second is already more or less included in the article or in the related Lasallian educational institutions. The third may be added to the introduction of the latter article; however, I am reluctant to do so since it is not sourced.
- Following your suggestion, I introduced the image into the article; it is different to the one presently given in Jean-Baptiste de la Salle, and fits the scope of the article well. However, I used a higher-resolution version that was available on the Commons (shown to the left). Ayla 20:39, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
