The District of San Francisco New Orleans is part of the Lasallian Region of North America of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. The District family is composed of approximately 100 Brothers and 2,000 Lasallian Partners. Together, they serve over 21,000 students in 24 apostolates located in Arizona, California, Colorado, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, and Washington, and in Tijuana, Mexico.
As both a local presence and a member of the worldwide Lasallian family, our District exists to animate and support our educational mission as it is carried out through the ministries and activities that our District sponsors. This is accomplished through its organizational structures and initiatives, as well as through its traditional Lasallian culture of faith in the presence and action of God, association for a common spiritual and professional vision and purpose, and service in meeting the educational needs of all members of the human family, especially the young and the poor.
