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

Loving God, we confess that we often try to mask our challenges from those around us. We pretend that we are whole to mask the brokenness in our lives. Where there can be healing, we ask that you help restore us. Where healing is not possible, we ask that you give us acceptance of our limitations and the strength to forge on. Help us to be patient with ourselves and tolerant of others. Shift our mindset from what we are not, to what we are and are yet to be. Move us forward together as a community for your glory and our neighbors’ good. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

After many weeks of research, including trips to the University of Minnesota, interviewing experts and participants in history, and reading countless sources and documents, US History students are ready to show off their finished History Day products on Tuesday. An Open House is scheduled from 6:00-8:00pm to celebrate the great work of our history scholars.

History Day is an annual project in the 11th grade Social Studies curriculum that gives juniors an opportunity to become expert historians by selecting and researching a topic of their choice around a national theme, which this year is “Taking A Stand in History.”

Students can demonstrate their research through exhibits, documentaries, performances, websites, and research papers.
