God of Love,
Your son, Jesus, is your greatest gift to us.
He is a sign of your love.
Help us walk in that love during the weeks of Advent,
As we wait and prepare for his coming.
We pray in the name of Jesus, our Savior.

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

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 socioeconomic 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 19 from 12:15-1:15 p.m. (right after finals) in the Lasallian Ministry office. Please sign up if you are interested.

Student Council wants to know what kind of dress-up days you’d like to see during Winterfest. Please vote now.
