Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

God, let me not forget all of those who live in fear – and inspire me to take simple action to comfort them. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us. Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Please email Ms. Hodapp if you are interested in attending the play “Freedom Daze” on Thursday, October 1, with a group from DeLaSalle. The play – presented by Exposed Brick Theatre and Intermedia Arts – tells the story of two girls who meet at a dinner party in Zambia in 1974. One girl would be sentenced to a life in solitary confinement, the other would become an artist diving into her story. Freedom Daze is a journey through the media maze of (mis)information, indoctrination and the creation of an enemy class of “them.” Through a multi-media approach, this performance addresses the United States’ media misrepresentation of the Middle East and persons of Arab, Muslim or Middle Eastern backgrounds.

The play will be performed at Intermedia Arts, 2822 Lyndale Ave. S. in Minneapolis at 7:30pm October 1-3. For Tickets: call 612-871-4444 or visit www.intermediaarts.org
