Dear God,
Please reveal to us your sublime beauty
that is everywhere, everywhere, everywhere,
so that we will never again feel frightened.
My divine love, my love,
please let us touch your face.

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

In the news…

November is Native American Heritage Month, or as it is commonly referred to, American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month.

The month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people and to learn more about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present, and the ways in which tribal citizens have worked to conquer these challenges.

Lasallian Ministry invites you to celebrate Native American Heritage month with the following:

  • Movie Night: Wednesday, November 20, “Dakota 38”; 3:15pm in D117
  • Posters: Check out posters posted around school highlighting Tribes of Native America and famous Native Americans
  • Check out these great events happening around town.


All are welcome to join Lasallian Ministry for Mass with Father Bruno on Tuesday mornings at 8:00am in the school chapel. The chapel is located in Christian Brothers Hall through the Lasallian Ministry office.

Students will meet with their academic mentor following their first period class on Tuesday, November 19. The meetings give students and their mentor a chance to check in on a student’s academic progress.

Each month, a group of DeLaSalle parents and family members gather on campus to lift up our community in prayer. All parents, family members, friends, and alumni are welcome to participate when the group meets Tuesday, November 19, from 12:00-1:00pm, on the creative side of the Thies Lab (D207). We hope students, staff, families and friends at DeLaSalle will feel encouraged by the knowledge that people care about them, are excited for them and are PRAYING FOR THEM! You may submit prayer requests, which may remain anonymous, to prayer boxes located in the main office, Lasallian Ministry, or Theology classrooms.

This year, Student Council will be selling year-long Out-of-Uniform day wristbands. These wristbands will be sold for $12. (Regular Out-of-Uniform passes will still be able to be purchased in advance for $2 and $3 the day of.) These wristbands will help provide Student Council with the funds necessary to plan student events such as school dances and Winterfest Week.

These wristbands will also include “perks” throughout the year, such as free hot chocolate before school and reduced tickets to the dance.
