We Are Faithful

Our hearts are guided by our faith. Rooted in the Lasallian Catholic tradition and inspired by our school’s patron, Saint John Baptist de La Salle, we are committed to cultivating the faith of all La Salle students.

Through liturgy, community service and education, La Salle’s Office of Campus Ministry encourages spiritual growth and participation in the sacramental life of the Church and Catholic charism of our Lasallian institution. In fact, in spring 2018, La Salle Academy was blessed with an exceptionally positive review “with commendation” from the Christian Brothers of the District of Eastern North America on the assessment of our Catholic charism.

We attend to all of the spiritual needs of our students and develop lifelong faith formation. La Salle’s strong, Christ-centered ministry department also provides opportunities for participation in liturgical events, retreats and school-wide fundraising events for our fellow Lasallian school, The Child Discovery Center, in Nakuru, Kenya.

In early 2018, The Frank and Imelda Moeslein Chapel was established at La Salle Academy to provide students and faculty a true venue for prayer, worship and reflection. Students have the opportunity to attend Mass several times per year and receive a unique experience of the Holy Eucharist.

Integral to the mission of the Office of Campus Ministry is community service. Each of our students are required to complete 80 hours of service during their time at La Salle before graduation. Service opportunities are available throughout the year at The Bowery Mission and New York Relief centers.

La Salle has several partnerships with Catholic organizations throughout New York City, including Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York, parishes and elementary schools.

“Campus Ministry is designed to help our community hear the call to serve, to be thankful and to use the example of Saint John Baptist De La Salle to be true Christians to one another. Through ministry, through liturgy and through dialogue, our community is called to be a light to each other and to the greater community at-large through our prayers and example as Lasallians.”
