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

In this Advent season of waiting, Lord, forget our sins. Remember Your love. Remember each one of us. Remember Your people everywhere. 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.
