This fall, for the first time in more than a year, La Salle Prep gathered as a community for Mass. Because of the pandemic, students and staff worshipped outside where they could sit in the open air on the stadium's new turf.
In his liturgy, Father John Marshall of St. John the Baptist Church in Milwaukie, described the core Lasallian principles, including honoring the presence of God in every individual. He also encouraged everyone gathered to lean on and into their faith.
"Don't be afraid to call upon the Holy Spirit," he said. "The Holy Spirit has been given to you to be able to give and lift others in love."
