Dear God, Our Father, We thank you for our lives. We thank you for making each one of us a unique person. We thank you for each other. We thank you for the many gifts you have given us. Help us to see the gifts of other people. Help us to share our gifts with each other. Help us to care for each other the way you care for us. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Baby Drive · Again this year, the DeLaSalle community hold a baby drive for Abria, a Minneapolis-based agency that supports expectant and new mothers. Needed items can be donated in the portable crib located in Albers Atrium.

Winter sports are just around the corner! DeLaSalle students who wish to participate in a winter sport must register for the sport before it holds its first practice. Students received an email with a registration link and season start dates. As a reminder, DeLaSalle students must have a current physical (current within the last three years) and Minnesota State High School League eligibility statement on file with the Activities Office before they can participate in a sport. DeLaSalle offers winter sports in boys’ and girls’ basketball, JV competition cheer, boys’ and girls’ hockey, sideline cheer, boys’ swimming, and wrestling. Our hockey, wrestling, and swimming teams are co-op programs with other schools.
