Five DeLaSalle students joined more than 60 other students from nine high schools at Lewis University in Romeoville, Illinois, for the 2012 Midwest District Lasallian Youth Gathering in June.
This year’s gathering centered on the theme “Carry the Light” and gave Amelia Allert ‘13, Gracey Hellstrom ‘14, Molly Means ‘13, Sean Ramsey ‘13, and Cullen Williams-Freier ’13 the opportunity to deepen their faith in the Lasallian tradition.
“They had clearly formed a vibrant Lasallian community together,” Brother Larry Schatz, Visitor of the Midwest District of Christian Brothers, said about the gathering.
The students lived on campus at the Catholic university, which is sponsored by the Christian Brothers. Campus minister CJ Hallman '02 and art teacher Ms. Megan Longman joined students for the weeklong gathering from June 25-29.
