How happy I am, O my God, to find You always present wherever I may go or wherever I may be. Awaken me to Your presence; waken me to Your indwelling; waken me to inward sight of You, and speech with You, and strength from You. May my spirit leap up to You all day and in all ways. Amen.

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

In the news…

For the past 26 years, DeLaSalle has spiritually adopted several families through Sponsor a Family Minnesota in addition to helping teenagers served by Sharing & Caring Hands and Avenues for Homeless Teens. These recipients have benefited greatly from our generous spirit; last year, students and staff collected over $5,000.

This year’s recipients include families through Sponsor A Family Minnesota as well as families from the Cheyenne River Reservation with whom DeLaSalle connected during a weeklong service project this summer.

Donations are accepted November 25-December 5 in 9th and 10th grade Theology classes or 11th and 12th grade English classes.

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 have the opportunity to participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation during their Theology class tomorrow. Theology classes will meet in the Main Gym, where priests will be available to offer the sacrament or meet with a student. Theology teachers will help prepare students in their classes.

To help students put the puzzle pieces together and approach the ACT with confidence, DeLaSalle is offering two optional prep classes for juniors.
