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

Let us remember all of our brothers and sisters who have suffered the results of hurricanes, wildfires, earthquakes, persecutions and war. We pray that our loving God will give them courage and hope to begin again.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

On today’s calendar…



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.

RESPECT LIFE MONTH: FOR THE BABIES!  Want to help a baby make some noise for DeLaSalle? Buy a baby rattle this weekend. Donate it to our Drive for the Little Ones. Bring items to the Atrium all month.

This week we will be celebrating and honoring the rich diversity that is present at DeLaSalle High School and in the world.  It is our hope that the events and programs that are planned for the week will provide a springboard into a yearlong and life long appreciation of the beauty that exists in every aspect of diversity.

Today everyone is welcome to join L.E.A.P. for a conversation around borders both physical and metaphorical.  Bring your lunch to Room B215.
