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

Lord God, you are my strength. Hold my hand in my weakness and teach my heart to fly. With you, there’s nothing to fear, nothing to worry about. Hold me tight in your embrace, so that I can be stronger than the challenges in my life. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Welcome back Islanders! Start your semester off on the right foot by joining the Christian Brothers community for morning prayer on Monday’s at 7:45AM. The chapel, located in Christian Brothers Hall by the Lasallian Ministry office, is open to students and staff during the school day for quiet prayer and meditation.

Lasallian Ministry is taking a group of students to the March for Life on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at the state capital in Saint Paul. Students who are interested should sign up here and complete an anticipated absence form for periods 3-8 no later than Thursday, January 17 and return it to either Mr. Rogers or Ms. Stecklein in Lasallian Ministry. We will be leaving from DeLaSalle after the Martin Luther King Jr. Prayer Service at 11:00AM and will be returning by the end of the school day. We will participate in the march in front of the capitol and then visit for prayer and a tour at Saint Paul Cathedral.

Encuentro: St. Catherine University Theology Institute is a year-long program for rising high school sophomore, junior and senior girls that seek to awaken an encounter with God, self and other young women in an inclusive and sacred space. Encuentro begins with a week-long residential summer theology institute, June 16–22, 2019, and continues throughout the school year with formative events in the fall, winter, spring and summer. There is no cost to participate, thanks to a grant from the Lilly Endowment Inc. Theology Institutes for High School Youth Initiative. Click here for more information.

A Pepfest to recognize winter sports had been scheduled for the end of the school day on Friday. This pepfest has been moved to the Winterfest/Catholic Schools Week pepfest on January 28 due to a schedule conflict involving one of the winter sports teams.
