As a Lasallian Catholic institution, La Salle Prep is committed to becoming an anti-racist community. This section contains resources to engage in the important and necessary work about learning and fully understanding our own racial identities, discussing systematic and institutional racism, and developing an action plan for dismantling these systems.

La Salle Catholic College Preparatory inspires students to find their voice as global citizens, to put their faith into action, and to lead exceptional lives of integrity, honoring the God-given dignity of all.

As the banners in our school state, we believe in a quality education, respect for all persons, inclusive community, faith in the presence of God, social justice, and concern for the poor.
 
Prayer to Overcome Racism
 
Mary, friend and mother to all,
through your Son, God has found a way
to unite himself to every human being,
called to be one people,
sisters and brothers to each other.
 
We ask for your help in calling on
your Son,
seeking forgiveness for the times when
we have failed to love and respect
one another.
 
We ask for your help in obtaining from
your Son
the grace we need to overcome the evil
of racism
and to build a just society.

We ask for your help in following your Son,
so that prejudice and animosity
will no longer infect our minds or hearts
but will be replaced with a love
that respects
the dignity of each person.

Mother of the Church,
the Spirit of your Son Jesus
warms our hearts:
pray for us.

Amen.
