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

Lord, sometimes you come to us in unexpected ways. Open our eyes to recognize you in all the ways that you are present to us. Amen

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

Daily Digest


Meatless Mondays in the DeLaSalle Cafe start today and continue every Monday through April and May. This is an initiative of the GREEN Team as a way to raise awareness about the agricultural, ecological, and political impact caused by raising meat for human consumption. The Cafe will offer popular, nutritious, and delicious meatless meal options, such as today’s entree of grilled cheese and tomato soup. Other offerings include black bean burgers, cheese and veggie pizza, baked potato bar, waffles, and many other tasty entrees.

While providing appetizing and healthy meals, going meatless one meal a week will help us save…

  • 5,400 pounds of carbon dioxide each week (that is equivalent to approximately 1,800 exercise balls full of carbon dioxide)
  • 28,287 gallons of water each week (or, an Olympic-size swimming pool overflowing with water each school year)
  • 144 animals each week
