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

God, let my day be Yours and let it be filled with goodness and faith. Amen

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

​For the past 23 years around Christmas, DeLaSalle has spiritually adopted several families through Sponsor a Family Minnesota and the Aliveness Project.  These families have benefited greatly from our generous spirit. Last year students and staff raised around $4,000.  Several teachers have graciously agreed to be the money collection point for each grade level.  Donate money in 9th and 10th grade Theology Classes or in 11th and 12th grade English Classes.  Money collection is daily and continues through December 2. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

​Anyone who would like to go Christmas shopping for our adoptive families, please sign up in the Lasallian Ministry office or send an e-mail to Ms. Hodapp.  We will shop after school on Friday, December 4 from 3:15-5:00pm. Christian Service hours WILL NOT be awarded for this event.
