You can help pick next year’s Scripture theme. Mr. Lieske is looking for suggestions for the theme, especially Scripture passages that speak to DeLaSalle’s engagement with Pope Francis proclaiming this the Holy Year of Mercy. Submit your idea to Mr. Lieske along with your thinking about why it would be a good Scripture theme for next year. Email your suggestion or drop it off in the administration office before the end of the month.
