With the desire to offer a good service to children and young people through education, our Founder sensed the importance of harmonizing human and Christian values according to the religious vision of life where culture cannot do without the Gospel.
The weak situation of French society in the educational and evangelizing aspects led Venerable Brother Gabriel to look at the needs of the youth of his time in a compassionate and committed way. To extend that gaze and contribute to the noble mission of “forming good citizens for society and saints for heaven” is our task in the cultural context of our world. Today, as in the past, Brother Gabriel’s expression is the concise statement of an educational approach that, without losing anything of the tradition, must have its creative place in the present time. The content of this pedagogical principle invites us to take educational care of all dimensions of the personality of our students and to commit ourselves to the constant improvement of society.
