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

Lord, we ask a blessing on all those who guide us in the right way. Help us to give good example to others. Amen.

In today’s news…

IT’S OFFICIAL: We have Respect Life Month in October of each year. “The Church,” Pope Benedict said, “is called to proclaim the gift of life, to serve life, and to promote a culture of life.” So we remember all forms and all ages of life that God has given us.

WHY IS RESPECT LIFE MONTH IMPORTANT? It is a time to move away from the ways people disrespect life through war, poverty, abuse of the elderly, neglect of children, and abortion. At DeLaSalle, we focus on daily supplies for babies born to poor families. Every donation you bring in to Lasallian Ministry, whether big or small, will go to the Northside Total Life Care Center.

RESPECT LIFE MONTH: FOR THE BABIES! Imagine yourself babysitting a teething infant. The little one has lost her pacifier and really needs it to soothe the teething pain. What can you do? Donate a pacifier or two to our Drive for the Little Ones. Bring items to the Atrium all month.

The next academic mentor meeting is Today, after 1st period. Your mentor will check in with you to see how you are doing as we near Parent-Student-Teacher conferences. Please bring materials to work on while you are not meeting with your mentor.

DeLaSalle students who receive need-based financial aid must schedule and complete 10 hours of work-service each year in return for their grant.
