21 September was the International Day for Peace which marks the beginning of the Lasallian International Days for Peace (September 21 to October 21, 2021) with the theme: Rise Together for Peace. It is a month long global initiative that is run by #LasallianYouth. At noon we joined Lasallians in Kenya, Ethiopia, Mozambique, South Africa, and Nigeria virtually to pray for peace. Great things happen when we come together. Let us continue to pray for peace in our schools, communities, countries and for the world.

“The only way we eliminate period poverty in our world is to ask ourselves about the power we have in shaping our communities. It is the little things like buying an extra period product and donating it to period charities or simply just talking openly about periods without any fear or shame. It starts with you”.

“The Holy Spirit still stirs up thoughts and words of wisdom in the elderly today. Their voice is precious because it sings the praises of God and safeguards the roots of peoples.
