Prayer is a vital part of Catholic life and Lasallian life because it nurtures our living relationship with God. To support your prayer life the De La Daily prayer app is offered as a contemporary resource designed for personal use.
The app draws its inspiration from the spirituality of St John Baptist de La Salle (1651-1719) who recognised the centrality of prayer as a way to remember that we are always in the midst of our ever-present God.
For Apple to accept a proposal for a new product, there needed to be a 'point of difference' and for our app, the point of difference is the Words of the Founder.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle was a prolific writer and we are the beneficiaries of his profound writings that have transcended place and time. These theological, spiritual and pastoral works continue to affirm, challenge and inspire all Lasallians, as such the 'words of the Founder' form the foundation of the De La Daily prayer app.
The app will offer a daily reflection for each day of the year.
The De La Daily prayer app is a collaborative, grassroots project that is created and resourced 'together and by association' by the following Australian Lasallian Schools:
St Bede's College Mentone, Victoria
De La Salle College Malvern, Victoria
St John's Regional College Dandenong, Victoria
St James College Bentleigh, Victoria
St Michael's College Henley Beach, South Australia
La Salle College Middle Swan, Western Australia
So, take out your phones, go to the App Store, search for the De La Daily Prayer app and download it. It is a free gift to all Lasallians and beyond.
