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!

On today’s calendar…

The first practices and tryouts for spring sports are starting, even though the snow on the ground makes it hard to think of outdoor activities. DeLaSalle offers spring sports in baseball, softball, track and field, boys’ and girls’ golf, boys’ and girls’ lacrosse, and boys’ tennis. You can find when practices will be held and how to contact spring coaches here.
