Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
Eternal Father, every day we find ourselves in need of you. We search for your strength and healing to help us with the hurt or empty places in our lives. Hear us as we call out to you. Let us feel your hand leading us out of our darkness and into your light. And, just as you sent your Son to give to your presence a human touch and voice, may we then take the blessing of your compassion to share with others. We pray that, in this Advent, we will make of ourselves gifts of good news of peace, mercy, and justice. We ask this of you who lives and reigns with your Son and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

A special shout out to Br. Ryan and Ms. Westphal’s classes who raised $2,000 each and to those students who helped shop for the gifts.
Great job DeLaSalle!
We know that the Christmas concert is a hit with families. As we anticipate a large turnout for this year’s concert, additional free parking is available in the Nicollet Island Pavilion overflow parking lot, located just south of the Hennepin Avenue bridge. There will be no charge to park in the lot that evening and a DeLaSalle Event Parking sign will indicate the entry to the lot. A free shuttle will transport guests between the parking lot and the school.
DeLaSalle will again broadcast a livestream of the event, which will be available here.
We are seeking poems, short stories, creative essays, drawings, etc. Submission due date: December 19th
Here’s an example of one poem that has already been submitted:
the world turns
get lost and find love
explore what you do not know
dissect what you do
tearing back the layers
