Campus Ministry takes very seriously the Lasallian call to faith, service and community. Through retreats, immersion programs, and opportunities for worship and prayer, the faith life of the community is enhanced. By providing opportunities to serve those less fortunate than ourselves, we respond to the Gospel call to service. All of these experiences combined help to build a strong community committed to building the Kingdom of God.
Campus Ministry is an integral part of student life at De La Salle and with participation in the Lasallian Youth, students are able to emulate the life and deeds of our Founder in service, faith and community.
The Campus Ministry has prepared many opportunities for your sons to experience the De La Salle brotherhood and a vital faith life. We strongly encourage you to sign up for the retreats that fill up fast, especially the Senior Kairos and/or the Father/Son and Parent/Son Retreats. You might also want to begin thinking about your sons participating in one or both of the Ven A Ver (Come and See) Immersion programs, the first one takes place in Salinas and the second one in San Diego.
Students at De La Salle are offered opportunities to practice the Lasallian heritage of service and concern for the poor. All Sophomores and Juniors have the opportunity to participate in an Immersion Program, a one-day experience of walking in the shoes of the poor and marginalized.
Junior and Seniors have the opportunity to participate in our Ven a Ver (Spanish for “Come and See”) immersion programs which find their foundation in the rich tradition of Catholic Social Teaching and The Hebrew and Christian Scriptures – The Bible.
We are saddened to announce that due to ongoing COVID health and safety concerns for our host, and the agencies that we work within San Diego and Imperial Counties, the Ven a Ver San Diego Immersion scheduled for March 7-12, 2022 has been cancelled.
The Campus Ministry Program offers a number of retreat opportunities for all grade levels. Freshman and Sophomore Retreats are part of the Religious Studies curriculum.

Worship and Prayer
Throughout the year, the De La Salle community gathers for Worship and Prayer. These gatherings include all-school Masses, as well as Thanksgiving, Advent and Lenten prayer services. All liturgical celebrations are planned and executed with student involvement. Complete schedules for all liturgy services can be foud on the Worship and Prayer webpage.
In addition, every weekday at 7:30 a.m., Father LaSalle will celebrate Mass, which will be live-streamed from the De La Salle chapel. The live-streamed broadcast can be accessed on the De La Salle High School Chapel YouTube channel. Everyone is encouraged to take an active role in the prayer life of De La Salle.
