Pastoral

Pastoral

The main objective of the Pastoral department is to accompany the students in the active participation of the values of solidarity, interiority, transcendence and responsibility.

La Salle Bonanova carries out its evangelising and pastoral work attentive to the specific needs of each school student in order to favour its integral and human growth. This task is the responsibility of the entire educational community and is assumed by all its members.

Team

The Pastoral department is formed by a group of teachers from the different stages of the school and works with the Communion and confirmation catechists and Finestra Oberta. This department prepares the programming of activities taking into account the own character and the evangelizing line of La Salle.

The pastoral team seeks to revitalize and offer to teachers and students materials to work the motto of the course, liturgical times, morning reflection, celebrations during the course. They also energize charitable actions with different entities and activities to cultivate interiority.

Axes that define our Pastoral

Theme of the year
Nowadays in all the educational centers of La Salle we work a personal  core value through the one theme for all institution. This work is adapted to the age of the students.
Pastoral care in the class
We start everyday with a five minute personal reflexion around a topic that it is related with the values of solidarity and social involvement. We celebrate the most important times in the liturgical year, we get to know the life or our founder Sant Joan Baptista de La Salle, we do religious teaching in the school (ERE) and we get to know the reality of the third and fourth word through the lenses of several organisations.
Pastoral solidarity
All throughout the year the students have the possibility to participate in different campaigns to help those that are more in need. El Domund, the Christmas campaign and the Proide campaign are a very good example of those.
Pastoral youth
For the teenager students the pastoral department offer several activities to build up the identity and meaning of belonging such as “Fem Xas” in first of ESO, and other activities of living together, the Montserrat trip that we take part with lots of other  La Salle in Catalunya.
First Communion

According with our personal nature, La Salle Bonanova offers to the families of the students in fourth of Primary the possibility that their children will receive the first communion in the school chapel For those students, the chatesism starts in third of primary and continues at fourth. 

For each student, the first communion is a very important event. In this celebration they will receive Jesus as a spiritual and mysterious way. The older ones help them to receive with devotion, respect and joy.
