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

For the cycle of life
Which brings death and rebirth
A. We rejoice in the promise of Spring

For lengthening days
And sunlight’s warmth upon the soil
A. We rejoice in the promise of Spring

For all of creation
And the majesty of its Creator
A. We rejoice in the promise of Spring

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

On today’s calendar…



In today’s news…

Good luck to the boys’ basketball team, which drew the #1 seed and will face Hermantown in the quarterfinal game of the Class 3A state tournament on Wednesday at 10am at Williams Arena.

The DeLaSalle Fly Fishing Club is proud to announce some great opportunities available with Trout Unlimited, a non-profit organization focused on conserving, protecting, and restoring the cold water fisheries where trout thrive. The program is called the Foster the Outdoors Mentorship Program. This program is designed to get you and a parent/guardian involved in fly fishing. As part of the program, you will be provided a volunteer mentor that will teach you about the sport and the equipment. They will also take you out on three guided trips to love fishing spots and provide assistance as you learn various techniques.
