Lasallian Volunteers Announces 8th Director


Kathleen Glackin, LV 09-11, will serve as our next director effective July 13, 2015. She has been a member of the LV staff as recruitment coordinator since July 2013.

General Councilor Brother Timothy Coldwell, FSC, announced the appointment of Glackin, which came after a two-month search process.

“Kathleen has distinguished herself in the office and in the field with her passion and professionalism,” said Brother Timothy. “I am confident that she will bring fresh energy to the people and program that seeks to change the world one heart at a time. Her ministry of leadership will be surely marked by a love and joy that will touch the hearts of the young people and young adults God has entrusted to all of us.”

Kathleen served as a Lasallian Volunteer from 2009-2011 in Memphis, Tennessee, at De La Salle Elementary at Blessed Sacrament. After completing her two years of service, she continued to volunteer at De La Salle as she took on the role of assistant campus minister for the Diocese of Memphis.

“I am excited and humbled to serve as the next director, and to continue to spread the mission of the Lasallian Volunteers,” said Glackin. “My years serving as an LV were the most formative years of my life. To be given the opportunity to give back to the program as recruitment coordinator, and now director, is an honor. I look forward to continuing to use my passion for the program and the Lasallian mission to serve others.”

Glackin, a Philadelphia native, has been involved in service since high school, and she received a dual degree in theology and communications from Loyola University of Chicago.

She takes over leadership of Lasallian Volunteers as it enters its 27th service year with a 10-day orientation program at Lewis University in Romeoville, Illinois, that begins July 21.
