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

Lord Jesus, gather us to you so that we may know and love you more. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Come to an information session to learn more about Twin Cities Youth Rowing this Saturday from 9:30-10:30am at the Edina Boathouse (5250 W. 74th St., Bay 16, Edina).

Information sessions are opportunities to learn and to ask questions. No preregistration is required. ALL are welcome!

NO tryout or previous experience is required to join the team. Just bring a good attitude, a strong work ethic, and the understanding rowers work out hard. Questions? Call 612.760.0575.

Lasallian Ministry will continue offering the Monday morning prayer in the Upper Room school chapel in November. You are invited to Mass November 7, prayer on November 14 and 21 and Mass on November 28. We begin at 7:45am and all are welcome!

How do we know that God exists?  Is it just a matter of faith, or is it reasonable to believe in a Creator?  Being that a small but growing minority of Americans (almost 1 in 10) do not believe in God at all, now is a good time to rediscover how solid our belief in God truly is.  Learn about how even our innate desire for God gives us proof.  Come to the Lasallian Ministry office during lunch hours on Mondays (Oct. 31, Nov. 7, Nov. 14) to enjoy a free cookie, a brief video clip, and some good discussion with Fr. Joe Kuharski, our school chaplain.

Sorry to those who hoped to go to the NET Lifeline Mass in November – the priest saying that Mass is such a popular speaker that they have to sell tickets for it and it was already sold out in early October! We will have to go that one next year and see what all the excitement is about! In the meantime, it works out OK, because Lasallian Ministry has the Night to Fight Homelessness that same weekend. Check with Ms. Hodapp for details!

Our next Lifeline Mass will be Saturday December 3. There is a concert afterwards with Steve Angrisano and the tickets are $10. Mark your calendar and watch The Source for a sign-up form and permission slip.

You may have noticed that St. David’s Center for Child and Family Development utilizes Room B107 after school Mondaythrough Friday to facilitate an after school program for people with disabilities.  If you would be interested in volunteering on a particular day, please e-mail Ms. Hodapp to set up at date.  Even better, if you would like to volunteer every week on a certain day of the week, you can do that as well.  The program is from 3:30-6:00pm daily.

You can earn Christian Service hours this week by volunteering to help Marcy Open School with their annual Fall Fun Fest. Volunteers are needed after school Wednesday and Thursday and during the fest on Friday from 5:00-8:00pm. Tasks include wrapping gift baskets, setting up, running games, and cleaning up.
