My hope, O Lord, is in your mercy.
Though I trusted in your mercy,
Let my heart rejoice in your salvation;
let me sing of the LORD, “He has been good to me.”

Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us!

Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever

In the news…

Our All Souls Day Mass is next Tuesday, November 2. This is a special Mass when we remember and pray for all who have died. Our school community will observe the feast of All Souls Day with a school Mass during WIN #1. At this Mass, we invite you to lift up your loved ones who have passed away in three different ways.

  1. Bring in a Framed Photo. The Mass will incorporate a traditional Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) ofrenda table in front of the altar. We will display the framed photos of those who have passed on the ofrenda table to remember and pray for them during Mass. Photos can be dropped off in the Lasallian Ministry office or theology classrooms. Please mark the back of your photo with your full name so we can return it to you after Mass.
  2. Names in the Book of Remembrance: All theology classrooms will have a booklet where you can write the name of your loved ones who have passed. We will include this booklet in our ofrenda table and prayers.
  3. Offer a Candle at the beginning of Mass: Have you lost a loved one in the past year? We would like to give special remembrance to those who have died in the past year by bringing forward a candle in their honor at the beginning of Mass. If you would like to bring forward a candle for your loved one, please complete this brief form.

Chicago is a dazzling and satirical look at fame, justice, and the media machine. Set in 1920s and based on real-life events, Chicago follows Roxie Hart, a wannabe vaudevillian star who murders her lover and is arrested, despite her attempts to convince her pushover husband, Amos, to lie for her. In the Cook County Jail, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and nightclub performer Velma Kelly. When both acquire the same lawyer, the greedy superstar, Billy Flynn, tensions come to a head as they vie for the spotlight.

Do you have an opinion about the future of the Catholic Church? Have you ever started a sentence with “The Church needs to…”? High school students in particular are being asked to weigh in as part of a synod process that is underway in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. Your input is important to helping shape Synod focus areas – important topics in our faith. One of these focus areas is, “Forming youth and young adults in and for a Church that is always young.” Get involved at your local parish. Find more information here.
