Both the Congregation of Christian Brothers or Irish Christian Brothers, and the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools or Lasallian Christian Brothers run educational and other institutions with "Christian Brothers" in the title.
Saint Jean-Baptiste de La Salle, founder of the De La Salle Brothers and Patron Saint of all teachers

Lasallian educational institutions[1] are educational institutions affiliated with the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, also known as the De La Salle Brothers or the De La Salle Christian Brothers, a Roman Catholic religious teaching order founded by French Priest Saint Jean-Baptiste de La Salle, who was canonized in 1900 and proclaimed by the Vatican in 1950 as patron saint of all teachers. The De La Salle Brothers, say that, assisted by more than 73,000 lay colleagues, they teach over 900,000 students in 80 countries.[2]

Lasallian educational institutions come to prayer with the call;
Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

They close prayer with the call and response:
Saint John Baptist de La Salle,
Pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts,

The US-based La Salle International Foundation, which supports global educational and other networks of the De La Salle Brothers, say on their Web site that they sponsor educational projects and support schools in 80 countries; and that they give special attention to youth at risk, including those "educationally excluded, street children, orphans, victims of child abuse, drug addicts, disabled youth, individuals with mental illness, migrant and refugee youth, HIV+ and AIDS children, child victims of war, juvenile offenders, child laborers, victims of child trafficking, ethnic minorities, disadvantaged girls, and impoverished children".[3]

Cases have been reported, some admitted, others under investigation, of physical and sexual abuse of children in Lasallian educational institutions.[4]

Sexual abuse cases[edit]

There have been a number of cases of institutional sexual and physical abuse of children, many over a period of several decades, in Lasallian educational institutions in several countries. Several are described, with references, in a section of the article on De La Salle Brothers. Branches of the De La Salle Brothers admitted to these cases, and issued apologies publicly and to victims.
