Christian Brothers of Saint Mary’s College


This treatise on the Catholic nature of Lasallian higher education in the 21st century was written by two communities of Christian Brothers in consideration of the contemporary issues around which teachers and students must deliberate. Of necessity, they articulate a definition of Catholic scholar and the significance of the presence of Catholic scholars in the intellectual and formative life of the institution and its students.
