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

Heavenly Father, every good thing we have comes to us from your merciful hand.  Help us to be grateful always.  Amen.

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

The goal of the night is to experience what it might be like to be homeless in the midst of a Minnesota winter as well as create awareness around the topic of homelessness.  It is also an opportunity to gather with students from other Lasallian schools. There will be prayer, ice breakers, a soup meal, speakers, activities, and you will be sleeping outside.  If you are interested in participating, please e-mail Ms. Hodapp by Tuesday, October 18. The cost of the event and a permission slip will be shared as soon as possible.  You may also stop by the Lasallian Ministry office if you have questions.

Sign-up is underway for winter sports. At least one parent in each household received an email from the Student Activities office with a link to sign up. Registration is as simple as opening the email and selecting which winter sport your son or daughter would like to participate in. Registration does not have any fees associated, and it is not binding. However, we do ask that all interested families sign up if you are interested in playing a winter sport.
