How to Accompany
Ongoing accompaniment is an important aspect of Lasallian Mission Education and Formation. Accompanying someone on his/her Lasallian journey means to not only send them to Lasallian Mission Education and Formation, but to also engage them in their formation by regular check-ins with them throughout the experience, and by offering encouragement to deepen their commitment to the Lasallian Mission.
Accompaniment can occur in many forms: structured and unstructured; one-on-one, or in small groups.
Among the questions which administrators might ask of their participants in Mission Education and Formation are:
- How are your studies going?
- What is the best thing that you have learned in your formation so far?
- How do you see what you are learning affecting our ministry?
- Do you have any thoughts in how you might become more involved in animating the Lasallian Mission at our ministry?
- Does your training require a final capstone project? If yes, what are you thinking about in terms of your project?
- How can I support you as you participate in this formation?

To be engaged in Lasallian formation involves a commitment to the Lasallian Mission, both personally and professionally. Through formation, we strive to develop a sense of belonging and community, which strengthens commitment to the Lasallian Educational Mission at the local, District and Regional levels.
