All-powerful God, increase our strength of will for doing good that Christ may find an eager welcome at his coming and call us to his side in the kingdom of heaven, where he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit one God, forever and ever.

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

Today is our final Tuesday chapel Mass of the semester at 8:00AM.

We hope that you will join us in prayer. Also, in addition to yesterday’s celebration of Gaudete Sunday (Rejoice), it was also Bambinelli Sunday, an Advent tradition that began when Pope John Paul II invited children to bring their “bambinelli” (Italian name for the Baby Jesus figurine) to Saint Peter’s Square to be blessed.

You are invited to bring the Baby Jesus figure from your Nativity scene to the chapel during 8:00AM Mass tomorrow and it will be blessed by Father Bruno.

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.
