Appointment of Br. Armin Luistro FSC as De La Salle Philippines President

03 July 2017

Dear Fellow Lasallians,


It is with great pleasure that we, the members of the National Mission Council of De La Salle Philippines (DLSP) welcome back Br. Armin Luistro FSC to DLSP with his appointment as President effective 01 July 2017. Br. Armin will be completing Br. Jose Mari Jimenez FSC’s (Br. JJ) unexpired term as DLSP President until March 2020.

Br. Armin brings with him a wealth of experience as a leader: from 1997 to 2004, he served as the Visitor of the De La Salle Brothers Philippine District; in 2005 he was our first DLSP Network President, when DLSP was still in its incipient phase; and more recently, he ended his appointment as Education Secretary under the administration of President Benigno Aquino III being one of the proponents of the administration’s major education program, the K to 12 Basic Education Program. 

We also would like to take this opportunity to thank Br. JJ for his service as our DLSP Network President for the last five years, from 2012 to 2017.  He will remain a member of the National Mission Council, and will focus on his work as the Auxiliary Visitor for Strategic Planning and District Development of the Lasallian East Asia District (LEAD).

Let us give our unwavering support to both Brs. Armin and JJ in their respective tasks for the Lasallian Mission in the Philippines and in LEAD.

Thank you.

In St. La Salle,

Br. Jose Pardo, AFSC
Co-chair, National Mission Council
