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

From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!

(Traditional Scottish prayer)

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

The lunch get together with Fr. Joe originally planned for today has been postponed until next Monday.

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 (Nov. 7, Nov. 14, Nov. 21) to enjoy a free cookie, a brief video clip, and some good discussion with Fr. Joe Kuharski, our school chaplain.

Our community will gather for All Saints’ Day Mass between first and second period tomorrow. Please come prepared for worship. We welcome our school chaplain, Fr. Joe Kuharski, as our celebrant.

On Wednesday, we will recognize many students for their academic accomplishments at our Academic Pepfest after 8th hour.

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.
