Illuminations: Self-Guided Window Tour App and Merchandise
As an extension of the original “Illuminations: The Life and Work of Saint John Baptist de La Salle” initiative, members of the of the 2019 IALU cohort collaborated with the offices of Mission, Marketing and Communication, and Information Technology Services to create a self-guided window tour app to allow users to explore the windows that depict significant events in Saint John Baptist de La Salle’s life. Ten windows guide viewers through key moments in the Saint’s life — from his childhood in Reims, to the vows he took with his Brothers, to his death in Rouen and his glorification in heaven, where he is welcomed by Christ and acknowledged as a great teacher by Saint Ignatius Loyola. Two additional windows — depicting the Nativity of our Lord and Jesus as teacher (“Suffer the Little Children to Come Unto Me”) — help to provide the gospel context for the De La Salle narrative.
Additionally, with the support of the College Bookstore, Illuminations tote bags and notecards are now available to commemorate the #300LaSalle celebration! Merchandise can be located through the following links:
