Feast of Our Lady of Guadualupe
Virgin of Guadalupe, Patroness of unborn children, Teach us to cherish and to care for family and friends until God calls them home. Guide our public officials to defend each and every human life through just laws. Inspire us all to bring our faith into public life, to speak for those who have no voice. We ask this in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, who is Love and Mercy itself. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us! 
Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever!

LEAP is having their annual Christmas Party on Friday, December 13. Please bring your lunch to D104.

New members are welcome if you commit to staying for the whole party and checking out the group, maybe you will want to join LEAP 2nd semester.

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 Friday, December 13, 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.

To help students put the puzzle pieces together and approach the ACT with confidence, DeLaSalle is offering two optional prep classes for juniors. The classes will give students the opportunity to take 5 full ACTs and review their errors. During class, students will review topics tested on the exam and learn testing skills to improve their pacing and scores.

The exact times and dates for classes are listed here. To register, complete the online Registration Form by tomorrow.

Exposed Brick Theatre (EBT) will create a performance with students from DeLaSalle High School for Social Justice Week in February 2020.

Under the guidance of EBT teaching artists, DLS students will create stories from their own lives that explore key social justice issues – such as gender, immigration, race/ethnicity and socio-economic status. EBT artists will weave these stories into a script and the project will culminate in a full production for the DeLaSalle student body. You DO NOT have to perform in order to participate. The time commitment will be during your 44 minute lunch period only on 11 days in January and February. This is open to students in periods 4 & 5 lunches only.

We will have an informational meeting on Thursday, December 19th from 12:15-1:15 p.m. (right after finals) in the Lasallian Ministry office. Please sign up if you are interested.
