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

Lord, let me hear and respond to the cry of the poor, the downtrodden, the oppressed, the outcast, the prisoner, the weak, and the defenseless, with my prayers and with my substance. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

You are invited to the DeLaSalle Christmas Concert tomorrow at 7:00pm in the Florance Center. Students in the Bel Canto and A Cappella Choirs, Chamber Orchestra, Concert Band, and Symphonic Band will perform. Come support your classmates!

We know that the Christmas concert is a hit with families. As we anticipate a large turnout for this year’s concert, additional free parking is available in the Nicollet Island Pavilion overflow parking lot, located just south of the Hennepin Avenue bridge. There will be no charge to park in the lot that evening and a DeLaSalle Event Parking sign will indicate the entry to the lot. A free shuttle will transport guests between the parking lot and the school.

On Thursday, we will gather immediately following first period for our annual Christmas Liturgy and program in the Florance Center.  Please move quickly and quietly with your first period class.  Students who are participating as readers in the liturgy should arrive to the Florance Center by 8:00am for practice and check in. Band and orchestra students should be dismissed at 8:50am to prepare for prayer.
