Seeking your insight

As you may know every year during the Christian Liturgical Season of Advent, many organizations publish an Advent Calendar, a day-by-day tool that encourages one to reflect upon and to prepare for the significance of God's presence among us that Christians celebrate at Christmas.


The Lasallian District of Eastern North America (DENA) also offers an online Advent Retreat which includes an interactive Advent Calendar.  This year, as part of the Year of Lasallian Vocations, the Advent Calendar will provide a daily quote about Lasallian vocations... that is, about you and your vocation as a Lasallian educator!


Maryann Donohue-Lynch, Associate Executive Director, Office for Mission and Ministry, DENA, invites you to be a part of this Advent Calendar project and asks that you consider submitting a brief reflection that may be included in this Advent Calendar by responding to the following statement with up to 20 words.

My Lasallian vocation......

  • "is an occasion for grace"       
  • "inspires me each day"     
  • "makes me a better teacher"

    Please send your quote / refelction, name and indicate that you are associated with Manhattan College to Maryann ( by Friday, October 26th to be considered for publication as part of the Advent calendar. 

    Thank you for your consideration of this request.
