Brothers of the Sacred Heart Establishes “Search Your Heart” Discernment Community

Dear Parents, Alumni and CHS Friends,

As I am sure you are aware, there are fewer Brothers of the Sacred Heart today than any other time in our history.  Yet, thanks to the strong tradition and leadership of the Brothers and the service of dedicated lay men and women staff members, CHS remains completely faithful to the educational charism of the Brothers. 

While the number of Brothers is diminished, their vision and commitment to the vitality of religious life is not.  The íÍSearch Your Heartíñ discernment community described in the attached link offers ample evidence of this.  Brothers Paul Montero, James Burns and Ray Hebert are assigned to this new discernment community beginning in August 2012.  Brother Ray will continue his full-time work as Guidance Director at CHS for 2012-2013, but he will be in residence at the discernment community.  Please read the attached letter from Brother Ronald Talbot, Provincial of the New Orleans Province, which describes this initiative and offers tangible ways you can help. 

CHS is fortunate that the Brothers have decided to locate this initiative in Baton Rouge.  I am confident that as this new community matures, we will find additional opportunities for service and spiritual formation of our students because of it.  Thank you in advance for your support of this initiative.

Gerald E. Tullier
