This is a video done by Molly Mahon, a student who participated in Project Mapendo this year. The trip traveled to Browning, MT to volunteer at the De La Salle Blackfeet School located on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation.
This video features a special performance at the Final Sunday Mass of the 2013-2014 school year at La Salle as we bid farewell to all our seniors!
Have a wonderful Summer and we’ll see you in the Fall!
This Lent individuals on campus have taken part in the CRS Rice Bowl program. During Lent students gathered every Wednesday to watch a video, discuss and pray. The videos where from countries that CRS is involved in: Kenya, Dominican Republic, Philippines, and Haiti. Each week the video, discussion and prayer focused on an aspect of Catholic Social Teaching/Human Rights; access to work, immigration, access to housing, etc.
Students who took a Rice Bowl with them also put money aside. The Rice Bowls are being returned now and the funds collected will be split between the La Salle Easter Food Drive (LGU) and CRS.
The video below was done by Molly Mahon. It shares the reflection of some of the students on this past Lent and the CRS program. La Salle was one of 40 Universities throughout the country that were highlighted by CRS. As Lent ends we invite you to share in these reflections.
Thank you to all that helped make the 2014 Service Trips Auction a huge success. The proceeds will help make the experiences of students on future trips even more special!
Project Appalachia, Equipo Esparanza, Habitat for Humanity @ Forsyth County, NC, and Volunteers in Mission will go out to do service the week of March 2! Stay tuned for pictures and updates from these trips and all the other events sponsored by University Ministry and Service!
Prayer for the Philippines
God, who quiets great winds and rough seas,
We ask your protection for the people of the Philippines.
Comfort them in their fear.
Stay close to them in their danger.
And we ask the intercession of Your Blessed Mother
That together with her and with all your holy saints
We may stand in solidarity with our Filipino brothers and sisters
through their darkest hour
through their longest night.
Give us the courage to remain steadfast
To reach out to each of them in their need
To comfort them in their sorrow
To hold them as closely as You hold them
To see them through to morning.
Plans for responding to this tragedy, especially as our fellow Lasallians are affected, will be developed in the next several weeks.
