Brother Gale Condit, a Lasallian Christian Brother for 60 years, is an advocate for using technology for good purposes and encouraging people to commit themselves to education, community service, and the Church. He has served as past president of Archbishop Rummel High School, past director of the Community of Brothers at the Christian Brothers School, and former principal of De La Salle New Orleans High School.
In an interview with Vatican News, Brother Condit emphasized the need for Christian Brothers to remind people about the proper use of technology and bring them closer to God. He noted that many people believe they do not need God because they live in a secular society with access to technology. However, he believes that technology must be used correctly and that it is changing our family unit in ways that cause loneliness and depression.
Brother Condit also highlighted the importance of discovering one’s call from God and committing oneself to serving others through community service. He shared his experiences hosting events such as a Senior Junior-Senior Prom where students interacted with elderly individuals who are often alone. Through these events, he encourages students to engage with individuals from different backgrounds and help them.
Lastly, Brother Condit emphasized the need for more Christian Brothers in society. He believes that Catholic and non-Catholic individuals alike can benefit from their teachings on how important God is in our lives. Despite declining numbers of brothers in recent years, Brother Condit remains hopeful that more men will join the brotherhood and continue its legacy of inspiring young people with the right values and examples.
