The spirituality and the charism of Saint John Baptist De La Salle have inspired the establishment of the Institutes of Women Religious. Currently, three Institutes of Sisters form part of the Lasallian Family, sharing the Educational Mission and the charism of our Founder. Two of these Institutes are present in LEAD.
1. Hermanas Guadalupanas de la Salle (HGS)
The Institute of the Guadalupana De La Salle Sisters from the apostolic zeal and intuition of the Servant of God Br. Juan Fromental Cayroche of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, who after 20 years of apostolic dedication in the Archdiocese of Mexico, saw the need to create a feminine Institute which could collaborate with the Brothers in the Education Mission.
Placed under the patronage of Our Lady of Guadalupe the said Institute would have as its inspiration and guide St. John Baptist De La Salle and as a special patron, St. Joseph. The Sisters consecrate themselves to God in order to dedicate themselves to the apostolic ministry of education, according to the charism of Saint John Baptist De La Salle. (Rule No. 2 )
The HGS Sisters are present in the Philippines, particularly in Antipolo and Bacolod.

2. Nữ Tu La San - La Salle Sisters
The Congregation of the Lasallian Sisters was founded in 1966 by the Brothers of the Christian School (La Salle) in Vietnam to take care of the needs of poor children abandoned because of the civil war in their country.
The Congregation agreed to take on the Rule, Constitution, and spirituality which Saint John Baptist De La Salle had given to the Brothers.
The Lasallian Sisters are present in Thailand.
