God, thank you for the gift of Saint Narcissus,
and his willingness to serve you in old age.
Teach us to admire and respect our seniors
who seek to serve You, especially the clergy,
who will serve you
until their last day.
when you will call them home to answer to you.

Each year DeLaSalle celebrates the rich diversity that exists within our community. This year’s Diversity Week theme is drawn from a Scripture passage “We are God’s masterpiece” (Ephesians 2:10).

TODAY, all are invited to morning prayer from 8:30-8:50 to pray in response to the injustices happening in our society. From 11:30-12:15, students and staff can bring lunch and meet some new people while playing fun online games. Islanders are also welcome to join the “All Life is Sacred” rosary from 12:30-1:00pm. You can find the Google Meet link on the Lasallan Ministry page in Canvas.

Then, make plans to participate in the cultural activities that we are offering during the WIN period on Friday. Students may sign up for a session through their Student Support Time dashboard.

DeLaSalle Theatre will host its first production of the season outdoors this weekend. Performances of “The Spitfire Grill” fall musical are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, each day at 2:00pm. 

This “sing through” musical triumph is an inspiring celebration of fresh starts and the power of what one person can do. It tells the story of Percy Talbot, who seeks to find her way following her release from prison. The show is free, but seating is limited and patrons must reserve tickets here. Freewill offerings are accepted. Those in attendance must wear a face covering and practice physical distancing.

The Green team environmental club will be meeting after school today for an outdoor urban hike and Fireside Cider S’more chat after school. Meet at 3:15 on Brothers Plaza by the fire pit. Dress warm, Rain or Snow! if you can, please RSVP to Ms. Beckman.
