Let us remember…that we are in the holy presence of God.
+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Lord of All Holiness,
We pray today as Simeon did upon meeting the baby Jesus.
My eyes have seen Your salvation, Lord,
as You came to be a light for all nations,
a light for revelation and glory.
May we see Your glory and goodness in each person we meet today.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us.
Live, Jesus, in our hearts – Forever!

Thanks to Student Council members for the Hot Chocolate this morning!

Archbishop Ireland invited the Brothers of the Christian Schools (Lasallians) to come to Minneapolis and serve as administrators and teachers at DeLaSalle because of their worldwide Lasallian charism of working with students of all socio-economic backgrounds.

In the early years, DeLaSalle primarily taught English to immigrant students and focused on teaching the industrial trades: drafting, plumbing, electrical, etc.

When the current “B” building was opened by the Archdiocese in 1922, DeLaSalle broadened its academic focus, shifting toward a college preparatory focus at that time.

The spirit stick scavenger hunt competition continues! Each day, four spirit sticks will be hidden around campus. You can look for the spirit sticks before and after school. Those who find the spirit stick will receive a prize. The class who finds the most spirit sticks by the end of the week will be the spirit stick winner for Catholic Schools/Winterfest Week AND will receive a special dessert next week during lunches!
Here are the four clues for Wednesday’s hunt:

     Clue 1: These items help you stay up to date and might tell you what may get served on your plate.
     Clue 2: I’m looking down upon you all, hopefully I do not fall, you’ll see me when your number is called.
     Clue 3: From this northeast window you may stare, it’s the only one where you will see some stairs (ladder).
     Clue 4: Between the colony and the pit, if you look hard you will find the stick.
If you find a spirit stick, bring it to the Activities Office.

To celebrate Catholic Schools Week, Lasallian Ministry will be putting together small bags with notes and candy to send out to Catholic grade school teachers at Annunciation, Ascension, Carondelet, Highland Catholic, Holy Spirit, Immaculate Conception, St. John Paul II, Nativity of our Lord, Our Lady of Peace, Risen Christ, Sacred Heart, and St. Thomas More.
If you would like to include a note or card in the care packages for your former teachers, please bring them to the Lasallian Ministry office. Care packages will be assembled during WIN #1 tomorrow. Sign up in SST. Packages will be mailed out on Friday.
Come to an interest meeting on Tuesday, February 8 in Mrs. Wojda’s room, B211, during WIN 1 to find out more about the Inklings Book club and our book for this semester: Howl’s Moving Castle. At this first meeting, we will discuss a reading plan and future meeting dates. If you already know that you would like to participate, please let Mrs. Wojda know or email her at with HOWL in the subject line and we will order a book for you. You can also let Ms. Arens or Mr. Newman know if you are interested because they also are moderators of the Inklings Book Club. Join us for a great read and a fun time this Spring!
