President's Reflections

Catholic schools exist to promote the Gospel, communicate Christ and help to form Christ in the lives of students. As such, Catholic schools help Catholic families and other people of faith to the discovery of life’s meaning and elicit new hopes today and in the future. 

In the Lasallian tradition, Catholic schools help students adopt a critical stance towards contemporary society. These schools are characterized by the determination to make the means of salvation available to young people through a quality education and by an explicit proclamation of Jesus Christ. “The Rule” 2 #13

We live in a cultural climate in which moral norms are often thought to be matters of personal preference. Catholic schools have a crucial role to play in leading the younger generation to realize that freedom consists above all in being able to respond to the demands of the truth. “Veritatis splendor” #84 

At certain times during the academic and liturgical year, De La Salle offers messages, prayers, and reflections to give the community opportunities to learn about aspects of the life of the school and engage others in our evangelical mission. The proclamation of the Gospel has never been easy or always well-received by the world. 

All of us, but especially young Catholics, need to be informed, developed and encouraged to become courageous defenders and promoters of our faith in order to know Christ and to bring Christ to others. The Lasallian educational vision is not complete without the recognition that the school is an integral means of salvation.

A Message from Administration- Happy International Women's Day!

I would like to take this opportunity on this International Women’s Day to recognize all the great-grandmothers, grandmothers, mothers, Godmothers, aunts, guardians, sisters, daughters, nieces, female cousins, peers, teachers, coaches, mentors, and of course all our female friends who in their own way have contributed to our lives in a very special and personal way. Whether they offered us a hug, a comforting word, some advice, support, accompaniment, a strong work ethic, love, and friendship, today we celebrate their presence and their contributions to our lives and to the world.
