It was a very chilly winter day when Brother Visitor Dennis Lee, FSC came to LaSalle for a day of conversation with staff and guided tour by our students. Very attune to youth, their needs as they relate to the mission of St. John Baptist de LaSalle, he spent considerable time on January 11th learning more about LaSalle, Albany and the teamwork contributing to the agency’s mission, including the Catholic Women’s Service League.
