Manhattan College and its Lasallian Catholic Mission
Manhattan College promotes two publications related to our Lasallian Catholic mission.
Ex Corde Ecclesia
Ex Corde Ecclesia (ECE) and "Ex Corde Ecclesia: The Application to the United States" published by the United States Conference of Bishops (USCCB) on May 3, 2001, affirm the ongoing work of Manhattan College administrators, faculty, and staff to preserving and enhancing the Catholic identity and culture of the College as exemplified by and implemented since its founding in 1853 through the religious heritage of Saint John Baptist de La Salle.
Distributed to all Manhattan College community members, this book is a guide to the presence of the Lasallian and Catholic tradition on our campus, in our current programs and practices, and in the lives of some of our distinguished faculty and alumni.
The book also provides a collection of quotations that are intended to assist with reflection on our core values and commitments. It is our hope that members of the Manhattan community—current and future students, faculty, administrators, staff, and alumni—will find this book a pleasant and helpful companion, one that may perhaps spark further study of and reflection on the rich legacy of the Brothers of the Christian Schools.
