The Different Areas of LMO
The Christian Living Area serves as the academic arm of the Lasallian Mission Office. As an integral part of the academic and spiritual formation of the entire Lasallian community, the area works hand in hand with the other academic subjects, as well as the three other major areas of the LMO: the Campus Ministry, the Social Action, and the Adult Ministry.
It gives priority to the religious instruction and the spiritual formation of its students, giving emphasis on the three Lasallian Core Values: SPIRIT OF FAITH, ZEAL FOR SERVICE and COMMUNION IN MISSION.
The Campus Ministry serves the mission of La Salle Green Hills by making visible the religious identity of the institution, and by nurturing the spiritual development of students through class recollections from Grade Three all the way up to the Fourth Year high school.
As rooted in the Gospel of Christ and in the spirit of St. John Baptist De la Salle, the Campus Ministry endeavors to nurture Christian student formation, and to support prayerful, prophetic, and pastoral action within the context of La Salle Green Hills education.
Through the Integrated Lasallian Formation Program (ILFP), the Campus Ministry provides opportunities for deep prayer and worship in close reference to both the Christian Living learnings in the classroom and the Social Action expressed in ILFP reachout experiences.

Lasallian institutions, must strive to develop among its members greater recognition of the realities of human suffering and the stewardship role that each shares in preserving the integrity of God’s creation and in creating a humane and just society.

It is also committed to involve the LSGH academic and non- academic community in reachout – related activities.
