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

God who created me,
You offer me new life through your Son
and through the gift of your sacraments.
While I see new life all around me,
I don’t always recognize the new life you offer me.
Help me to grow this Lent in an awareness
of the gifts you place in my life
and in a greater appreciation for your care.
Give me the courage to ask for help. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

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 today at 10am at Williams Arena. Tickets for today’s game cost $14 for adults and $9 for students. You can buy a ticket today from 7:45-8:30am in the Albers Atrium.

Today will be an online learning day. Still, morning transportation routes will run normally for students who want to ride a bus to De to take a fan bus to the game. Fan buses will start leaving from the front of DeLaSalle about 8:45am. After the game, afternoon transportation routes will leave De at 12:45pm.

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.
