De La Salle Week About De La Salle Week Saint Mary’s University has celebrated Founder’s Day for many years to commemorate its founding in 1912. It has been a time of celebration and recognition of individuals within the Lasallian community. With so much to celebrate about our Lasallian history and mission, six years ago our annual day of celebration expanded to become De La Salle Week. Students, staff and faculty members are warmly invited to a week of opportunities for learning, reflection, discussion and connection with others. De La Salle Week events are sponsored by the Offices of Mission and Student Life.
