Church of Saint Andre

This church in the center of Grenoble was familiar to De La Salle, who would bring the students from the Brothers' school here for Mass. His devotion in the celebration of Mass was such that it left an indelible impression on the citizens of that city.

Questions to Consider

Church of Saint Andre

  1. St. Andre is known for the great saints that are associated with it. How did De La Salle look upon that idea of sainthood? Does sainthood play a role in the ministry of teaching?
  2. Taking students for the relatively long walk to St. Andre must have been quite a chore. Why would he have taken them there when the church of St. Laurent was so close to the school?
  3. Education is more than classroom work, it appears. How does Lasallian education make that truth into reality?
