December 22, 2016 – On the students’ last day before the Christmas break, La Salle hosted Bishop DiMarzio from the Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens, a diocese where many of La Salle’s students live. The students enjoyed a beautiful Mass said by Bishop DiMarzio while the student band and chorus provided reflective music. The Bishop gave a homily in which he talked about the true meaning of Christmas; a time to give of oneself.
Valentine Lehr ’58, Board Chair as well as Board member, Brother Ralph Darmento joined in the Mass. Both Trustees thanked the Bishop for visiting La Salle and saying Mass for the student body. Principal Conroy also spoke about preparing for Christmas by welcoming everyone, no matter their status.
La Salle is so grateful for this special occasion with Bishop DiMarzio. It was a beautiful way to help remember the true meaning of the Christmas season. La Salle wishes everyone a very merry and blessed Christmas holiday!
