Our Rainbow Tribe – La Salle Academy

Let us Remember that we are in the Holy Presence of God.

We’re all here because we finally made it. We made it to the end of high school with all its ups and downs. Like D-Gommes coming to the Spring Fest. Like technically winning “clash” our sophomore year even though seniors are supposed to win every year. Like coming back and winning the championship at the last second. The sum of these experiences is:  “the Class of 22.” 

It took me a while to find La Salle. When I was eight, I moved to Rhode Island, and my world was shaken. As a young child, I was daunted by the task of making new friends in what I thought was an uninhabitable environment. I moved through elementary and middle school with little to no change. I was in an environment that didn’t push me to grow as an individual or become a better person. Then I made the choice to attend  La Salle Academy. On my first day I dreamt that my parents dropped me off in front of the school on the first day, and  I walked up the stairs grudgingly.LA SALLE ACADEMY - Middle Schools & High Schools - 612 Academy Ave, Providence, RI - Phone Number - Yelp When I finally got to what I thought was the front door, it was locked. That was my first experience with La Salle Academy, those big doors staring back at me as I looked embarrassed and turned around to find another way in. Obviously, at some point I woke up and found my way into the school building and the community that existed within it. Between now and then a lot of doors have been opened for me because I chose La Salle. This change was scary but without it I wouldn’t be where I am today.



Admittedly I haven’t looked forward to every single day at La Salle, but I do know that every day has been a gift, and an opportunity to learn something new beyond what is taught in the classroom. As underclassmen we got to experience the compassion of the juniors and seniors who only wanted to lend a helping hand and offer us valuable lessons. As an athlete we learned what it meant to spend 6 days a week in the same place, putting hours of work in just to do the same thing over and over for 2 to 3 months straight, all in an attempt to be the best teammate. I also learned what it meant to be a co-captain of a team, to lead a group of people and show them what it meant to be a team player. Now we’ve become those same upperclassmen lending our own helping hand to underclassmen that needed it. Entering my senior year I learned about what it takes to form a community post covid. And I’m sure we all know, it takes a lot. The most valuable thing I learned at La Salle is that the only limits are the ones you choose to set on yourself, and that is something I have grown to really respect as our time at La Salle comes to a close.Team Captain Clip Art N3 free image download

For one reason or another, we all chose La Salle. At this school, we got the chance to learn about other people, people who we would never have met without this place. We made memories that made us laugh and memories that made us cry. We made friends who might even be our best friends till the day we die. We had highs  that taught us what it meant to be happy and we had lows  that taught us important lessons. Simple things  like, how to manage our time better, “or” more difficult lessons like knowing who will support you and root for you in your darkest moments. The most basic thing we have learned is the true meaning of one of La Salle’s many mottos: “Enter to learn, leave to serve”. six words. 6 words that shape the very essence of La Salle Academy. We all learned here how to be a better student, a better friend, and a better person. We are now leaving to teach the same values to others. 

the lines are still good...: Enter to Learn, Leave to Serve...

Someone once told me that a forest of Aspen trees is actually just one tree that shares its roots, reaching out and bettering the whole community by working together. These trees share their drive and passion in order to make the whole stronger. That is La Salle. We come together everyday for a common purpose. The purpose of bettering each other and working towards the common goal of “serving others” I think that is a beautiful thing, working to build up students who will, in their “own” way, return that same effort back to the world and to La Salle. We will become politicians, teachers, athletes, firefighters, scientists, doctors, and more. In all these ways we create a better environment for the people around us, coming together for the most important purpose, humankind.

At La Salle people come from all over the place, and at first that made me nervous, but the community that I created here has helped me become the person I am today. My dad, some of you may know, grew up in a rainbow tribe, which is essentially a family where the kids come from everywhere and are, for the most part, adopted. His family has always reminded me of this school.

La Salle is MY rainbow tribe – OUR rainbow tribe. I know that once we all leave La Salle we will go out and create our own communities, and at the end of the day all this change and unfamiliarity that people are afraid of, is ok. It can be scary, whether it’s 1,500 students or 15,000 students or even 50,000 students, but each of us will go out and make new communities, new families, new rainbow tribes. We will go on to create new families all the while knowing that our La Salle family will always be there to support us. 

We come from every background, and every walk of life, and yet we’ve all finally made it to This week is “the ” last week of Senior year. look (read slowly) out around the room, and around “you.” After the 9th we will probably never all be together again, but that doesn’t mean this needs to be a melancholy moment. It means that we need to “remember” this moment, this rush of emotions, this family we have created. Now it’s time to go out and do for the world what La Salle did for us. It’s time to create better communities and a better world. 

La Salle will always be our community. Our Aspen tree forest. Our rainbow tribe. Sitting around you are 350 people who will share in your victories and challenges for the rest of your lives, and all because we CHOSE La Salle. As a final lesson for our time in high school, the doors to the LaSallian community will always be open to us, even when the ones on Academy Ave are locked. Our generation was meant to change the world and now we finally have the tools, thank you La Salle and thank you class of 2022 you have made the last four years unforgettable.

A Young Black Man In America!

Let us remember that we are in the Holy Presence of a Loving God

My name is Jason Lebrun. I am currently a sophomore. For today’s prayer, I would like to tell you what it’s like growing up, as a young black man in America.

So then I was born. Born into a world with hatred, violence, judgment, labels, prejudices, and many more. However, my coming into the world is different from others. While growing up, I was taught at a young age to follow directions, do what you’re told, and don’t talk back. Seems normal for a parent to tell their kid growing up. However, I was given another set of directions to follow. This time it was more serious than ever. At a young age, I was taught to always respond to the police nicely and never with an attitude. To always finish my sentence with yes sir, use my manners, don’t give an attitude, and always be polite. As I was taught this, I didn’t really understand why I had to know this and perform this act but growing up, I soon realized that my mother was trying to protect my identity, which is a young black man in America.

George Floyd, Breona Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Trayvon Martin, Yvette Smith, Tamir Rice, Shereese Francis, and more, and more, and more. These people lost their lives due to police brutality. These weren’t just people. They were also Americans. Americans that, also have rights just like anyone else, however, their lives were cut short because of the color of their skin. Seeing people like me dying due to police brutality on the news day after day after day, makes me realize, “Will I be next?” “Will I end up on a T-Shirt?” “When will this all end?” “When will we finally be equal to one another?” During Black History Month, we say their names who have lost their lives due to police brutality and who are failed by the justice system in America. We also take this month to realize the black excellence and the black culture that America likes to hold us down on. Black History Month shouldn’t be just once a month. It should be taught and educated for what all black people have done, not just in America, but for the world.


Let us pray. In chapter 12, verse 14 Hebrew it says “Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness, no one will see the Lord.” God made us in his own image, nor did he make a mistake creating us. He didn’t create one to be on top of another, but for one to love and care for each other.

Mental Health Awareness from a Young Age

Let Us Remember That We Are In the Holy Presence of A Loving God.

Black History Month has been celebrated annually since 1926. Each Year, Black History Month has a theme. The theme for 2022 focuses on the importance of Black Health and Wellness. This theme acknowledges the legacy of not only Black scholars and medical practitioners in Western medicine, but also other ways of knowing birth workers, midwives, naturopaths, herbalists, throughout the African Diaspora.  The Black Community has suffered from a long history of health care disparities. In the Black community, mental health issues are often compounded by the psychological stress of systemic racism. As a result, African American adults are 20 percent more likely to report serious psychological distress than other races. Beautiful People: Black History Month Tribute Ride 405 – …it's all about Studio Cycling!At the same time, there is a stigma on mental health awareness. Seeking mental health care is often viewed as a weakness, running counter to the survivalist mentality born from systemic oppression and chronic racism. “Much of the pushback against seeking treatment stems from ideas along the lines of, Black people have survived so much adversity and now someone is going to say that there’s something wrong with us. Hopefully, this year’s theme can help us raise awareness surrounding mental health from a young age, we can break stigmas and shape this generation to approach mental health in a new, positive way.

Gracious and loving God,

We thank you for being our companion as we journey.

through a world where there is a great deal of indifference.

We thank you for welcoming us just as we are.

We pray that you will transform us and make us the people you want us to be.

We lift up and thank you for our Black brothers and sisters who have shaped history.

We thank you for the opportunity to learn and reflect particularly at this time, here and now.

We pray that the learning happening in schools, homes, and workplaces will be meaningful and deep-rooted.

We pray for open hearts and minds,

And spirits willing to learn and be transformed by you.

May this month be a time of curiosity and sharing,

Conversations and celebrations,

Challenge and encouragement.

Heavenly Father, help us to dig deeper,

Look closer, and think bigger.

With God All Things Are Possible

Good Morning… Let us remember that we are in the Holy Presence of God…

God has saved us more times than we know. Have you ever thought about how many times God has diverted you from harm’s way? Perhaps that flat tire saved you from a bigger incident that was waiting for you further down the road. Or maybe that cold you got that required you to stay home saved you from failing a test you hadn’t been quite prepared for. Or that instinct that tells you that you don’t need that shirt that’s in your shopping cart, because you have the same one at home in three different colors. 

Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread Matthew 6:11 Bible Verse Wall Art Decal Quotes Christian Home Decor - 11" x 9" - Walmart.comGod not only steers us away from harm, he also gives us grace. What is grace? It’s that moment when you are so angry with someone, and you know you can say that thing, that ONE thing that can really hurt them, but that inner voice tells you “Don’t do it. Don’t say what you want to say right now. Walk away.” 

What a gift that is, to have someone looking out for us, and our wellbeing. We are run by our emotions day to day, but luckily God is not limited to how we see the world as humans. God sees all things, and knows all things. And all we have to do is ask for his help when we are stuck or in trouble. With god all things are possible Images, Stock Photos & Vectors | Shutterstock

The other great part of grace is that we can give it as well as receive it. Giving grace means wanting the best for your neighbor, your family, your teachers, your students, your colleagues, and your friends. Success, love, light… These are all expansive qualities of the human experience, meaning there is no limit to how much of them can exist. So today, let’s pray for each other, look out for each other, and thank God for having our back.

 Let us pray…Dear God,

I give this day to You.

May my mind stay centered on the things of spirit.

May I not be tempted to stray from love.

As I begin this day, I open to receive You.

Please enter where You already abide.

May my mind and heart be pure and true, and may I not deviate from the things of goodness.

May I see the love and innocence in all mankind, behind the masks we all wear and the illusions of this worldly plane.

I surrender to You my doings this day.

I ask only that they serve You and the healing of the world.

May I bring Your love and goodness with me, to give unto others wherever I go.

Make me the person You would have me be.

Direct my footsteps, and show me what You would have me do.

Make the world a safer, more beautiful place.

I Saw Jesus On The Train Today

Good morning La Salle and de La Salle…Let us remember we are in the holy presence of a loving God.

How often do you talk to God? I talk to God a lot. In fact, I tend to talk to God consistently throughout each day. Most of the time, I’m asking God for help, for relief, for guidance, for answers…sometimes, I even ask God to help me win the lottery so I can run away to some tropical paradise for the rest of my life. But with all this talking that I do to God, how often am I actually hearing what God is saying back to me? Or even more- how often am I seeing or not seeing  how God is responding to these needs and desires that I have right in front of me? 

787 Teenager Praying Illustrations & Clip Art - iStock

I’d like to read an excerpt from writer Vinita Wright. What Wright describes, struck me as I was preparing for this prayer. She writes, 

“I saw Jesus on the train today. He had worked a long shift, his coveralls a patchwork of sweat and grime; yet he joked with a coworker in the adjacent seat. I saw Jesus awhile later, as the crowd filed onto the stairs to the street below—he was a young girl with two small children in tow, her nerves clearly frayed. And then, in the grocery store, there was Jesus again, a check-out clerk who smiled and wished me a good evening. The next time I saw him, he was stuck in traffic, his business suit rumpled and his eyes weary. And when I walked by my neighbor’s house, Jesus sat on the front step, passing the time with a friend.”308,235 Blue Collar Worker Illustrations & Clip Art - iStock

You see my friends, we ask a lot of God, and rightfully so. But we must also be open to the many ways we may encounter these answers we are looking for. So no, I don’t actually expect Jesus to choose the winning lottery ticket for me this week. But serving the needy at the Coat Drive up at the State House in November certainly felt like winning as I watched families get items they so very desperately needed in order to keep their families warm this winter. I saw Jesus when our students went to McAuley Village to bring some Christmas joy to the families there who needed it most. Gallery - Jared Emerson | Coffee with jesus, Cafe art, Jesus wallpaper I saw Jesus again when I got coffee with two La Salle Alumni who were home from college and heard all the beautiful stories of their lives post-grad. And I saw Jesus responding to my need for relief when my husband made a homemade dinner and had a fire started when I got home from all of the errands that needed to be done. 

Today, may we be reminded to look a little closer, to listen a little harder, and to find the different ways God may be answering our prayers. . 

Let us pray, 


“When Jesus came to share our human existence, he changed what it means to be ordinary people going through the day. Each one of us has a purpose and a place in the world. Each of us experiences pain, fatigue, humor, and hope. If we look more intently at the people we encounter on a typical day, we will see who they truly are—persons loved by God. Regardless of appearance or situation, the woman, man, or child before you is brimming with holy possibility. Consider that you are gazing into the eyes of God. Understand that Jesus comes to you in many faces and places.” Amen. –Vinita Wright

Oh. Friendship. That’s The Point.

Let us remember we are in the holy presence of God…

The other night my daughters picked a book for their bedtime story that had been mother’s and
then mine as a kid. It’s nothing of great sentimental value but when rereading it, I realized I had
completely missed the point – as I had with countless other things – when I was a child.

Matthew 9:21 WEB - for she said within herself, "If I just touch his

The book, authored in the 1960s, is loosely based on Matthew’s Gospel, Chapter 9 in which Jesus
grants a man who is paralyzed the ability to walk. In this text, a wife calls on a group of her
husband’s friends to carry him to Jesus to be healed. They walk a considerable distance to find the
line is impossibly long, so they scale the house to the roof, hoist their friend up with ropes and then
cut a hole in the roof to lower him down to Jesus.

So what did I not get?

Well, as a child, I was pretty consumed with rules, and let me tell you, in this book they sure break
quite a few. Climb up a stranger’s house? Break the roof? Cut hundreds of people in line for access
to premium healing power??? I was appalled. And in response to all this behavior what does Jesus
say? “Your sins are forgiven.” And then he healed the man.

But when I read it to my girls, the oldest remarked, “That man has really good friends. And Jesus
was proud of them.”

Oh. Friendship. That’s the point.Friendship Friends Clip Art Black And White Free Clipart - Sports And The World, HD Png Download - kindpng

This year – probably more than any other year – I have noticed deep loyalty in the friendships of
our students. I have seen them articulate in writing that friendship might just be one of the most
important bonds in life.

As you get older, the nature of friendship changes – contact isn’t as constant. Your geographical
locations and schedules, or passions and pursuits take far different tracks. But true friendships will
last. Take care of them.

Let us pray,

God, life is about what we do for others.
Grant us friends willing to carry us to you. Friends who will bring us along when we don’t have the
strength. And help us to be the friends willing to scale houses for the people we love.

Be Thankful!

Morning Prayer 1/24 

Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of a loving God. 

A few months ago during dinner, as I sat with my parents and did all of my nightly complaining, my mom looked at me and just started laughing. While they normally listened to my nonsense and assured me that I would feel better eventually and should try to make the best of it, my mom came back with something different that night. She said that in April of 2020, all that I wanted was one normal day of school and I should think before complaining about the simple nuisances of almost normal everyday life.

Following the height of the pandemic in 2020, we repeatedly heard that we should be thankful and not take anything for granted. Last fall when we returned to school, we were grateful and enthusiastic, but quickly fell back into a cycle of complaining about the monotony of life and the simple annoyances that contribute to our days. And, especially now, we have seemingly forgotten about the constant uncertainty that looms over us. 

Monotony Images, Stock Photos & Vectors | Shutterstock

For the past two years, I have had a quote hanging on my wall among almost 200 pictures that reads, “Love what you have before life teaches you to love what you have lost.” We often forget to appreciate relationships, people, experiences, and simple routines, until they are taken away. In this new year and beginning of a new semester filled with opportunities, I challenge you all to celebrate the monotony of certain days, appreciate the annoyances of daily routine, and be thankful for being able to surround yourself, in person, with the loving people in this community.

Help us to recognize that there is value and purpose in every component of each day and that we should practice gratuity whenever possible.

In Celebration of our 150th anniversary of Our School

Let us remember that we are in the Holy Presence of God.

Today is another important day in the world of La Salle Academy, Providence, in particular, in the ongoing celebration of our 150th anniversary.

Tonight, at the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul, hundreds of inhabitants of that world will gather to celebrate the 150th anniversary of its birth on La Salle Square in downtown Providence, with a Mass of Thanksgiving.

The story of that century and a half is full of colorful characters, difficult challenges, and remarkable successes.

La Salle Academy Ruminations | Occasional Thoughts from Mr. Kavanagh

Perhaps the people who invited me to offer a reflection this morning thought that probably I was there at the beginning.  That is definitely not true.

I first arrived at the Academy in September of 1959, walking through the Smith Street entrance and a few more steps into my homeroom, room 103.  My homeroom teacher was Brother Gabriel Moran, who would become a noted theologian and writer.  Room 103 was not only my homeroom it was my Religion room, my English room, my Mathematics room.  Yes, we were in there all day, as the teachers came to us to teach.  We escaped each day to eat lunch in the cafeteria, standing at chest-high tables – not a seat to be seen in the place.  The preferred table for me and my friends was one that stood about where Mr. Santiago’s office is.

My stories could last much longer than we have this morning.  And there are tens of thousands of people across this country who have such stories about this place.  There are alumni who have been bishops and senators, Brothers and governors, Pulitzer prize-winners and brilliant researchers.  There are also innumerable ordinary women and men who look back on their time at La Salle with fondness and gratitude.

Yes, today is about gratitude.

Let us pray.

Creator God, we praise your name this morning and offer You our heartfelt thanks.

For the gift of our classmates, who learn with us in classrooms, laugh with us in corridors, compete with us on fields, we thank You, O Lord.

For the gift or our teachers, whose dedication to students and to mission is a beacon in a broken world, we thank You, O Lord.

For the gifts of our maintenance staff, our cleaning staff, our cafeteria staff, our office staff.  For these, the staffs of life for sure, we thank You O Lord.

For the gift of Brother Dennis, Mr. Kavanagh, and all the administrators who have, with Herculean efforts, guided us through the depths of a pandemic, we do thank You, O Lord.

For the parents and alumni and alumnae who have supported this community for a century and a half, allowing Faith and Community and Culture to be fostered in many generations of young men and women, we certainly thank You, O Lord.

For the many gifted, generous teachers of these fifteen decades.  For Brother Gabriel Moran, for Mr. Jack Cronin, for Mr. Carl Toti, for Brother Antony Harte, for Brother Timothy Rapa, for Brother Paul Goodwin, for Mr. Thomas Lowery, for TWO Mr. Vin McGinns, and many others, we are indeed thankful, O Lord.

For the Brothers of the Christian Schools who have enlivened us with the charism of St. John Baptist de la Salle, who have guided us on our way to You, we thank you mightily, O Lord.

And for the awesome gift of your Son, who came to us with redemption, taught us of You, of Mercy, we thank You from deep within our hearts where he, Jesus, lives.


Saint John Baptist de la Salle, pray for us.

Live, Jesus, in our hearts!  Forever!

Welcome Brother JD and Brother Steven

Let us remember that we are in the Holy Present of God.

Growing up with two older sisters was not easy.  Almost everything was pink or purple, Barbie dolls, cabbage patch kids, and frilly clothing filled our home.  All I wanted was a brother.  Alas, my parents never acquiesced.

In college, there was this group of guys on my dorm room floor.  They had long hair, listened to the best music, and played a mean game of MarioKart.  They were the coolest people I had ever met.   Over the years, our freshman friendship grew into a lifelong brotherhood, the first set of brothers I was to find in my life.Mario Kart Mario Clipart (#174658) - PinClipart


16 years ago I arrived to La Salle Academy, fresh out of college and I met a new group of brothers.  These men were cool in a different way.  They dressed head to toe in black, very fashionable.  They were men of knowledge.  They were clever, funny, caring, and compassionate.  Michael, Fred, Robert, Girard, Paul, Kevin, Bill.   These were the Brothers of the Christian Schools, educators at La Salle Academy.  They helped me to become a better teacher and guided me to a life closer to God. The Brothers Of The Christian Schools High Resolution Stock Photography and Images - Alamy

 Over the years, that iconic group of men diminished here at the Academy.  For many years now, the only Christian Brother on Campus was our Brother President, Thomas Gerrow or Dennis Malloy.  Not even our De La Salle Seniors can remember a time when the men in black roamed our hallways or stood at the head of our classrooms.  And so we are especially delighted this year to welcome two new brothers to our La Salle Community, Brother JD and Brother Steven. 

Their presence is perhaps more special than you know.  To be in the presence of a Christian Brother is something motivational and inspirational.  When I see a Christian Brother it helps me put my life into perspective.  A brother is a reminder of Faith, a closeness and trust in God that enlivens the soul.  A brother is a reminder of service, to be selfless and humble, to show compassion for the poor and marginalized, to make a sacrifice of self to better the lives of others.  A brother is a reminder of community, of a shared mission, and a responsibility to care for one another as children of God.  These are characteristics that we should all aspire to have and to have in abundance and we look to the Christian Brothers as models of that charism.  Their mere presence should act as a constant and gentle nudge to all of us to be the best version of ourselves each day academically, socially, and spiritually.

 So be sure to welcome Brother JD and Brother Steven.  Give them a reception that is worthy of our reputation as the Great La Salle here in Providence.  Even a simple and friendly greeting of  “hello Brother” or “Good afternoon Brother” shows them a respect that they have earned, but also provides you an opportunity to reflect on how you too can be a person of Faith, Service, and Community.   Form relationships with them and any Brother you meet along the way, they will enrich your lives.  They’re easy to find, they are the men in black who are back in the hallways of La Salle Academy.

 Let us Pray:

Dear Lord, We thank you for the gift of the Christian Brothers, the foundation of our school and all Lasallian schools.  Help us to emulate their passion for vocation, their care for the poor and marginalized and their commitment to education and social justice around the world.  All the blessings we enjoy here in our schools is a result of their sacrifice and dedication.

Believers Who Are Resilient Never Stop Turning To God

Let us remember that we are in the Holy Presence of God.  

Reflecting about this past year…where do we even begin. 

Teachers – would you have ever imagined that you would be teaching your lessons via something called zoom? 

Students – would you ever think that we would have to learn a hybrid style return to school where your friends would be on the opposite day as you?

– Just the thought of sweating with the horrid masks on.Zoom Class Stock Illustrations – 691 Zoom Class Stock Illustrations, Vectors & Clipart - Dreamstime

The challenges of this past year have truly been like no other.  

We as Lasallians adapted, persevered and continued to turn to God to help us strengthen our community.  We proved and will continue to prove how resilient we are. 

Why the term resilience?

Resilience Clip Art - Royalty Free - GoGraphResilience is the capacity to recover from difficulties and bounce back.  Well, next year is OUR year to bounce back.  We will accomplish more, serve others, and be more appreciative of our time with each other.  We will win State Championships, we will have more Drama productions, we will get more involved in clubs, we will support our classmates at their sports games, we will improve our grades and we will have more joyful times with each other.  We will show our resilience by coming back better, stronger and more unified! 

Believers who are resilient never stop turning to God.  

Let us Pray – Dear God, thank you for the community within La Salle.  We are grateful for the resources you have been gracious enough to provide for us and we ask that you continue to lead us on our unique paths.
