MILWAUKIE — They hail from different schools and three different communities in the Northwest. Despite their differences, students from three Lasallian schools all speak the same words when they bow their heads to pray, “Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.” 

Learning about other places and the people from other places is the purpose of Northwest Connections, an annual retreat that brings together students from three Lasallian schools in the Northwest. 

La Salle Prep in Milwaukie played host this year for eight guests from La Salle High School in Union Gap, Washington, and eight students from De La Salle North High School in North Portland. 

During the two-day retreat, the visitors and their Milwaukie hosts attended classes, worshipped, and served the poor together. They went to a high school basketball game, played with children at Christ the King School and welcomed a refugee family arriving at Portland International Airport. 

In between, the students ate and prayed together and slept overnight at La Salle Prep. 

They also talked about school, homework and dress codes. 

“It was way cool that we all came from Lasallian schools,” said Souria Luyamba, a La Salle Prep junior. “It was a little awkward at first. But once we got to know each other, it all clicked.”
