Leadership. Sustainability. Vitality. On 9-11 January 2020, the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in Sha Tin, Hong Kong, stood witness to these values from the Lasallian community as it became the venue of 3 simultaneous Pacific-Asia Regional Conference (PARC) meetings and a Lasallian East Asia District (LEAD) District Council meeting.
48 Brothers and Partners from Australia, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Malaysia, Myanmar, New Zealand, Pakistan, Philippines, Rome, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam attended the meetings.
Brother Visitors and Auxiliary Visitors from the PARC Region gathered for PARC46, which was presided by Br. Ricky Laguda FSC, PARC General Councillor.
Concurrently happening in another meeting room, the PARC Bursars met with Br. Martin Rocha FSC, General Bursar of the Institute.
The PARC Workshop on Pastoral Ministry on Youth and Lasallian Vocations took place in a 3rd meeting room. Brs. Rey Mejias FSC and Antonio Cubillas FSC facilitated the 3-day workshop with young Brothers and Lay Partners from all over the PARC Region.
On 11 January, more Brothers arrived to meet for the 33rd LEAD District Council. It was, through God's grace, a successful event – one that is certainly productive and optimistic.
