SMU alums, staff attend Young Lasallian Gathering

A “Young Lasallian Gathering” was held June 20-26 in Memphis at Christian Brothers University. The gathering was for professional young Lasallians from various ministries throughout the region. Young Lasallians are men and women, Brothers and Sisters, married couples, and single adults ages 22 to 35 who recognize they are a vital group that impact the world-wide Lasallian mission.

The weeklong conference focused on the theme, “to see, to judge, and to act.” This was the first of a series of gatherings that will occur throughout every region in the Institute over the next several years. A total of 40 Lasallians participated including Tim Gossen ’01, M‘06 (dean of students) and Ashley Gossen ‘05 (assistant volleyball coach), Sarah (Bellingham) Laitinen ‘07, Adam Runge ’10, Tina Bonacci (current Ed.D. student) and Brothers Frank Carr (SMU Board of Trustees), Pat Conway (SMU Board of Trustees), Larry Schatz, and Tony Elfering (postulant).
