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

Dear Jesus, may the light of your love always shine in our hearts. As Christmas draws closer, we marvel at your great love for us. Let your love transform every aspect of our lives and touch everyone we encounter. Our hearts are open to you, Jesus. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Bozhoo and Háu DLS Students!
You are invited to meet Hilary Abe from College Horizons. She will be visiting us on the island in January. College Horizons is an annual pre-college summer program for Native American, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian high school sophomores and juniors. Students work with college admissions officers, college counselors, essay specialists, and other educators in a six-day college admissions “crash course” focused on understanding the college admissions application process. Our rigorous workshops inspire students to find a college that will satisfy their needs for a fun, challenging and supportive environment. All are welcome!
