Brother Visitor, Armin, wasted no time after the PARC and District Council meetings in January 2020. Straightaway, he embarked on the canonical visit to the two Brothers Communities in Hong Kong - St. Joseph’s College and La Salle College.
Personal Interviews of each Brother took time, followed by a general meeting of all the Brothers in the community. Br. Armin asked the community to reflect on the Brothers’ ministry of presence to the different La Salle schools. This opened up explorations on what it means to be a Brother in LEAD having a mission in a very secular society and discovering the God-encounter in this context.
The community was also reminded to keep in close contact with one another and have joint community gatherings regularly.
Moreover, now that Hong Kong has had some experience in welcoming new Brothers, perhaps an evaluation can be carried out with a view to possible improvements.
Brother Visitor also threw out a challenge, wondering if international Lasallian volunteerism can be promoted in Hong Kong. The possibility of creating an intentional and international community of Lasallians is well worth a try.
A fine buffet dinner at a nearby hotel rounded off the proceedings.
