Dear Lasallians,

Welcome to the first days of summer.

Quite the hazy, hot, humid weather this week.

We at the District Office certainly hope that, during this summer, you will enjoy some time off, taking moments to kick back and relax.

If you happen to be around your respective ministry, please congratulate a Brother Jubilarian, Affiliated member, or any one of our long standing educators, who are featured at various links in this issue of Living Lasallian.

We celebrate these Lasallians in particular, but we rejoice in all the successes throughout DENA all year long. What a blessed year it has been in teaching minds and touching hearts.

Let us keep one another in our prayers, as we give thanks for all your hard work throughout this academic year, and as we hope for a safe, rejuvenating summer, which you rightly deserve.


Prayers & Blessings,

Dennis Lee, FSC
Auxiliary Visitor

Some feedback we received was that the prayers were not easily printable to refer to throughout the week. Now, on this web page, you can easily print out the Student Prayers to use in the classroom. They can easily be reached by clicking on the Monday-Friday Prayers button on DENA’s homepage.
