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

Thank you, Father, for having created us and given us to each other in the human family. Thank you for being with us in all our joys and sorrows, for your comfort in our sadness, your companionship in our loneliness. Thank you for yesterday, today, tomorrow and for the whole of our lives. Thank you for friends, for health and for grace. May we live this and every day conscious and grateful for all that has been given to us. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Stay hydrated and keep our campus green! You can now purchase your very own durable DeLaSalle water bottle in the Café or School Store for $7.

Buying a reusable water bottle will help reduce our carbon footprint and plastic waste. And it’s easy to fill up with the new water filling stations and drinking fountains we made a conscious choice to install throughout campus as we move away from single-use water bottles.

Water is essential for life.  Over 60% of our human bodies are made up of water.  It nourishes our cells, helps regulate our body temperature, delivers oxygen to muscles and organs, and is critical for brain functioning.  Thus, we want to make sure everyone in our community has access to it and stays hydrated.

We gather as a community between first and second period for our Thanksgiving liturgy. Come prepared to pray in Thanksgiving for all of the gifts God has bestowed on us.

There are no classes Wednesday-Friday as we observe Thanksgiving. May you, your family, and your friends have a blessed Thanksgiving.

The DeLaSalle School Store will be open today from 3:00-6:00pm. The School Store will be closed the rest of this week.

Fr. Joe Kuharski will be here to offer Mass on Monday, November 28 at 7:45am. Let us continue our thanks to God through worship. All are welcome.
