Feast of Saint Scholastica
O God, to show us where innocence leads, you made the soul of Saint Scholastica soar to heaven like a dove in flight. Grant through her merits and her prayers that we may so live in innocence as to attain to joys everlasting. This we ask through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Amen.

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

DeLaSalle has enjoyed its prime location on Nicollet Island for more than a century. We are blessed to share this vibrant neighborhood with residents and businesses and, just like you do where you live, we work to always be a good neighbor. This is especially important in light of the limited parking on and near our campus.

Thank you for observing all posted parking signs in the neighborhood.

As a reminder, students who have purchased a parking permit may park in the school parking lot or in the nearby Nicollet Island Pavilion overflow parking lot. Students may not park in the 2-hour parking spaces on the north side of Nicollet Island, which are monitored by traffic control agents with the City of Minneapolis, who regularly patrol and issue citations to violators. Students who do not have a parking permit may ride the school bus, carpool with another student, or use public transportation to arrive at DeLaSalle.
