The Lasallian theme for the 2016-2017 liturgical year is “One Call, Many Voices.”
The two global trends that we draw attention to in the Lasallian Reflection for
this theme are “sustaining spirituality amidst secularization” and a “new way
of being Church.”
The Brother Superior and General Council developed themes through the year 2021 in the
spirit of the 45th General Chapter. The 2016-2017 liturgical year celebrates “One Call,
Many Voices” as the supporting theme for the overall theme, “Living Together Our Joyful Mission.”
The Lasallian Reflection asserts, “One of our critical roles as Lasallian educators is to help
adolescents and young adults to understand one another and to discern the one call of God:
a provident God, at work in the fabric of reality.” It further invites us into a dialogue in the midst
of culture’s many voices. The Gospel icon of Pentecost serves as the frame for our dialogue.
The Brother Superior and General Council invite Lasallians to incorporate and celebrate this theme in
their ministry and/or community, and to engage in conversation and action. They encourage you to develop your own creative ways to employ this theme and share your efforts through social media.
This webpage includes resources to help you celebrate “One Call, Many Voices.” New resources
will be added as they become available. We encourage you to share with us how you live out this theme by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
