Father, All-Powerful and Ever-Living God,
Today we rejoice
in the holy men and women
of every time and place
May their prayers
bring us your forgiveness and love
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
From the Liturgy of the Hours


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

In the news…

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).

Don’t forget to sign up to participate in the cultural activities that we are offering during the WIN period today. 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.

On Tuesday, during the WIN period, we will celebrate a Mass in the spirit of All Saints Day and All Souls Day with our school chaplain, Fr. Kevin Kenney ’78. November is a popular time to remember and honor our loved ones who have died. We are creating an ofrenda table, a traditional Day of the Dead ritual, and invite all students, teachers, and staff to bring in a framed picture of a loved one who has passed away.  We invite you to bring a framed picture of your loved one with a post-it note on the back with your name and your loved one’s name to Ms. Lyngen in B207 by Monday. If you can’t drop off a framed photo at the school, you may email your picture to Ms. Stecklein by Monday at 2pm – and Lasallian MInistry will print and frame the photo for you.
