San Miguel High School: Teaching with Lasallian principles, working with the Cristo Rey model, in Tucson, Arizona

 


Saint John Baptist de La Salle is the Founder of the Brothers of the Christian Schools.  San Miguel Febres Cordero, after whom our school is named, was a brother from Ecuador who was a brilliant educator and preferred to work with the poor in teaching them about their faith.  More information about them is found on the "Lasallian materials" link on the left.
Our Lasallian heritage calls all teachers, but also each one of us, to be ambassadors of Christ and to touch the hearts and minds of all those around us.  One of the participants in the 2012 Lasallian Social Justice Institute said it this way: "We are Lasallian.  Education is our DNA."   What we receive is not for us to keep - we are called to share it, especially with the poor, the vulnerable, those who cannot, in various ways, care for themselves.

Live, Jesus, in our hearts forever!

QUOTES AND COMMENT

"God wants everyone to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.
This is our 'dangerous memory,' this is our mission and the mission of each one of our ministries from kindergartens to Universities.  We were born to be an instrument of salvation, an integral salvation that encompasses the whole person, all persons, but with a very special tenderness and primary option for the poor, the excluded, the abandoned and young people in search of meaning."

- Brother Alvaro Rodriguez Echeverria, FSC, "A Song of Hope for the Regrowth of the Founding Charism", 23 April 2014

"In the Hebrew Scriptures, the New Testament, and human history we see over and over again that God's people are on the move, fleeing oppression, war, enslavement, or other calamities and we always see the living God accompanying the poor, the migrants, and the young.  For us, there is no clearer teaching from our faith tradition and ongoing Lasallian story than that we respond in justice to the plight of the poor, the migrant, and the young through education.  For over 330 years of this God-is-with-us-story, we have shared St. La Salle's love for the young, especially the poor.  Our century, like the 17th and 18th, also suffers from indifference to those abandoned at the side of the road.  Our challenge is to offer a radical welcome, the oil of mercy, compassion, and inclusion."
