Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
May I mindfully appreciate the diversity of every being that I encounter, who, like flowers, bring beauty, variety, and sustenance to our world. Amen
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us. Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Text message alerts will not replace the recorded phone calls or email messages that you have and will continue to receive from the school. Instead, the text messages offer DeLaSalle another way to communicate with parents in a timely manner. Please contact communications director Matt Lehman with any additional questions.
Students, staff, and families may place written prayer requests in prayer boxes in the Lasallian Ministry office, Main Office, and staff lounge. You may express prayers on your behalf and on behalf of the needs and joys that you have seen in friends, students and colleagues.
Questions? Contact Parent Association co-chair Jackie Schluter-Johnson or Peg Hodapp.
