The Lasallian Pastoral Office contributes to the realization of DLSU's vision by providing opportunities for faith and spiritual development and by creating venues where the life and charism of St. John Baptist de La Salle are promoted in order to continuously inspire the members of the academic community to be achievers for God and Country.
All college students in the University go through the retreats and recollections offered by LSPO. Faculty members, non-teaching staff, maintenance and security personnel and other members of the DLSU community are also given the opportunity to develop and sustain their faith-life through relevant formation programs and meaningful liturgical celebrations.
The office is supported by a group of youth ministers known as the Student Lasallian Animators. The special formation and training they receive while serving their fellow students and the academic community develops them to be effective youth ministers.
