Lasallians gathered at Christ the King Catholic Church on Wednesday for the first Mass of the 2018-19 school year.
Student leaders welcomed their classmates to the Welcome Back service, which was themed "Your Year to Shine: Following the Lasallian Star of Faith."
Father Chris Brennan, CSC, welcomed the students and encouraged them to have faith, just as the Three Wise Men did when they followed a bright star toward Bethlehem.
"If there is something that strikes your interest -- like a star rising -- go for it," he said. "Even when we don't see God, he is present. When things get dark, look for a star to guide you forward. Look for that star...usually written on your heart."
