From Archbishop Hebda’s Litany in Time of Need
Let us pray: Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, Mother of the Americas. We fly to you today as your beloved children. Intercede for us with your Son, as you did at the wedding in Cana, and gain for our nation and world, our families and loved ones, the protection of your holy angels, that we may be rescued from this illness. For those already afflicted, obtain the grace of healing and deliverance. Hear the cries of the vulnerable and fearful, wipe away their tears and help them to trust. In this time of trial, teach us to love one another and to be patient and kind. Bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts. We come to you with confidence, knowing that you are our compassionate mother, health of the sick and cause of our joy. Shelter us under the mantle of your protection, keep us in the embrace of your arms, help us to know the love of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen

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

When leaving a voicemail, please remember to include your name, a number at which you can be reached, and a brief overview of your question. Additionally, the Islanders Course has a new button on its home page, and we will house tips and reminders that will help you during Online School.

Several different applications will be pushed out to your iPad, including but not limited to: Google Meet, Flipgrid, Ed Puzzle, Genius Scan, and Khan Academy. If there is not enough space on your device, you must delete personal apps/photos and videos to make room for these school apps. Students should not delete any of these apps as you will be using them during DeLaSalle Online School.

The Tech Department will address any student issues as soon as possible, but please be patient as we work to support all students in having a successful online school experience.

In the interest of everyone’s safety, students are not permitted on campus unless cleared by an administrator. Students who need to come to campus to pick up an item must reach out to the Dean of Students Office by emailing or by calling the office number at 612-676-7661 or 612-676-7667.

All student activities are postponed until further notice. This includes the scheduled performances of the spring musical “Catch Me If You Can.”

As we communicated yesterday, DeLaSalle distributed meals to more than 125 students who receive free or reduced meal benefits. If you or someone you know is in need of meal assistance, please contact Barry Lieske. We learned today of free meals being distributed by Minneapolis Public Schools to any student affected by school closure due to the COVID-19 outbreak. You may find more information here.
