Fermin Martinez (JP), Ms. Coreen Paul (MA), Ms. Christine Soe Hlaing (MM), Jay Gervasio (PH) and Br. Larry Humphrey (SG); not able to join were Mr. Ed Chua (PH) and Mr. John Chakrin Poopirom (TH).

Among the topics discussed were LMC projects and initiatives. Ms. Coreen Paul, Chairperson of the Ad Hoc Committee LEAD CARES, reported that to fulfill the District Council (DC36) resolution to promote and popularize recent Institute documents (Lasallian Mission Moving Forward Plan, Identity Criteria and the Declaration), the LMC is organizing the LEAD CARES (Community Appreciation and Reflective Study, a term borrowed from DLSP's LS CARES) webinars, which will be held on December 9 and 10, 2020 via online video conference. Expected to attend are school leaders, administrators and key stakeholders from most LEAD sectors.

As a response to Brother Visitor's call for a common project that will galvanize the seven sectors to collaborate and act as one District, the LMC is organizing LIVE LEAD, a Young Lasallians Congress to be held from January 23 to March 6, 2021. Some sixty (60) high school or secondary school students in LEAD are expected to participate in six (6) sessions that will culminate in a declaration of the participants' commitment and commissioning rites. LMC initiatives and projects are featured in the LEAD website: LEAD CARES <lasalle-lead.org/leadcares> and LIVE LEAD <lasalle.lead.org/livelead>.

Several other topics and updates were discussed, including formulation of the LMC charter or constitution, the need for functioning sectoral mission councils and a report on the recent Integrity and Safeguarding Board (ISB) webinar. The LMC03 finished with discussion on the Lasallian Reflection No. 6, which had been the inspiration for the opening and closing prayers and the LMC reflection led by Br. Larry Humphrey. The fourth LMC meeting has been scheduled for January 29, 2021. (Text & Photo: Mr. Jay Gervasio)
