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

Merciful God,
you gave the holy Queen Margaret of Scotland
A great love for the poor.
Please hear the prayers of our community
and help us to live after her example
so that your goodness and mercy
becomes visible in today’s world. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

On today’s calendar…



In today’s news…

We hope students, staff, families and friends at DeLaSalle will feel encouraged by the knowledge that people care about them, are excited for them and are PRAYING FOR THEM! You may submit prayer requests, which may remain anonymous, to prayer boxes located in the main office, Lasallian Ministry, or Theology classrooms.

DeLaSalle Theatre presents its fall musical “Evita”. The production is based on the historical story of María Eva Duarte de Perón, a poor Argentinian girl who grows up to be the wife of the president of Argentina, worshipped by her people. As First Lady of Argentina, she aligns herself with the poor, winning herself, and Perón, popularity among Argentinians. Evita becomes a hero to the poor and the working class—and an enemy to the rich. A young and unknown revolutionary, Ché, narrates the rise and fall of the beloved matriarch of the Argentinian people.

Performances are November 9, 10, 15, 16, and 17 at 7:30pm and November 11 at 4:00pm in the Florance Center. Tickets are $15 for reserved seats, $10 for general admission; $8 for non-DeLaSalle students and seniors; and free for DeLaSalle students with school ID. Purchase your reserved tickets here.
