Brouillet | In the Footsteps of De La Salle | The Brothers of the Christian Schools

Rural Youth

De La Salle's maternal grandfather, John Moët, was squire and lord. While De La Salle and his family lived in Reims, they also had a home in Brouillet. As a boy, he visited his grandparents during the summers—and it was his grandfather who helped him learn how to recite the divine office every day.
