The New Residencia De La Salle, a residential health care facility for Brothers, was blessed on 29 July 2013. The Residencia De La Salle has rooms and facilities that are designed to be comfortable and restful for Senior Brothers or younger Brothers recovering from illness. The Residencia De La Salle is located in the Campus of the De La Salle Health Sciences Institute in Dasmariñas, Cavite. The Senior Brothers will be accompanied by a community of younger Brothers who are still actively working in schools in the area. The De La Salle Health Sciences College of Medicine and the De La Salle University Medical Center will take care of all health-related needs of the Resident-Brothers.
The blessing was graced by the presence of the Superior General, Br. Álvaro Rodriguez Echevarria FSC, PARC General Councilor Br. David Hawke FSC, Lasallian East Asia District Visitor Br. Dodo Fernandez FSC and Auxiliary Visitor Br. Tom Lavin FSC. The building of the Residencia was made possible through the donation of DLSU Alumnus and benefactor, Mr. Eduardo “Danding” Congjuangco, Chairman of the Board of San Miguel Corporation.
