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

Dear Lord, You have brought me to the beginning of a new day. As the world is renewed fresh and clean, so I ask You to renew my heart with Your strength and purpose. Forgive me the errors of yesterday and bless me to walk closer in Your way today. In this we ask in Jesus’ name, amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

If you have walked into the “A” building in the last month, you likely have noticed a new mural on the wall. The unnamed work is the product of DeLaSalle Hall of Famer and designer of worldwide acclaim, Joe Duffy ‘67. Duffy collaborated with current visual arts students to design and paint a mural that reflects significant images in the history of the school, Nicollet Island, and the City of Minneapolis. DeLaSalle will formally dedicate and bless the mural, and also celebrate the thriving fine arts programs at De, during a school assembly today between periods 1 and 2 in the Main Gymnasium. Duffy is invited to speak at the ceremony. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey has also been invited to attend and speak.

On Wednesday, February 13, students will meet with their academic mentor to review their second semester progress. Mentors will also check in with 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students about course requests for the 2019-20 school year.
