Brother Robert Schaefer, FSC '85 Named Visitor for the District of Eastern North America

The Superior General of the Brothers of the Christian Schools in Rome, Brother Robert Schieler, FSC, announced the appointment of Brother Robert Schaefer, FSC, as the third Visitor for the District of Eastern North America (DENA).

Brother Robert is a member of the Class of 1985 from La Salle College High School, where his vocation was awakened by the many Brothers who were his teachers. He holds a BA and MA from La Salle University, along with an MA from Seton Hall University.

Brother Robert has had teaching assignments at West Catholic High School, Archbishop Carroll High School, and Bishop Walsh High School (MD). He spent 20 years at Central Catholic High School in Pittsburgh in a variety of roles, including seven as principal. His more recent apostolate as the Secretary of Formation for the Lasallian Mission for the Institute has given Brother Robert the unique opportunity to more fully appreciate the global nature of its work. He is well versed in the everyday workings of DENA’s educational ministries. The breadth of his experiences, combined with his positive attitude, good humor, and abundant zeal makes Brother Robert an ideal candidate to assume leadership for the District of Eastern North America.

Brother Robert will assume his new role on September 1, 2021 and the Christian Brothers look forward to him bringing a spirit of service which has been manifested throughout his career.
