As a Lalanne teacher, you will have the opportunity to enrich your connection to your faith and to strengthen your beliefs.

Orientation activities, retreats, living in community, discussions with colleagues and daily interactions with students provide opportunities for you to reflect on your personal faith journey. Each Lalanne community is also assigned a diocesan contact, a person who acts as a local reference for faith activities that you may wish to explore and who assists you with living in community.
