We are rooted in the Lasallian tradition of the Christian Brothers
De La Salle High School’s campus ministry excels in guiding young men and women of varied backgrounds and abilities to develop, reflect, and grow spiritually. In addition to Mass and a school-wide Day of Reconciliation, campus ministry also sponsors De La Salle’s “One Book for Social Justice Project” and grade level retreats.
One Book For Social Justice
Each year every member of our school community—each student, faculty and staff member, as well as many parents—study a social justice topic selected by a group of students and faculty. This project is an integral part of the De La Salle culture and our community’s commitment to examining social justice issues.
Topics studied have included:
• 2013-14: Tattoos on the Heart
• 2014-15: The Glass Castle
• 2015-16:DavidandGoliath
• 2016-17:IAmMalala
• 2017-18: Course-specific study of Incarceration
• 2018-19: Individual study and presentations exploring Environmental Justice
• 2019-20:Enrique’sJourney
