One La Salle was evident once again on the eve of the La Salle Green Archers’ opening game of the UAAP season against their archrivals the Ateneo Blue Eagles as the team, along with their “brothers” the La Salle Zobel Junior Archers, their NCAA counterparts the College of Saint Benilde Blazers and the La Salle Green Hills – College of Saint Benilde Greenies, and some alumni of the said schools celebrated mass together at the National Shrine of the Divine Child at La Salle Green Hills. Organized by Dr. Alex Ayco and presided by Fr. Dennis Meim, the mass is a first of its kind wherein four different La Salle basketball teams have come together to be one in prayer. It was originally scheduled at 6:30PM but was moved to 7:30PM because the Green Archers had to finish their practice first at the Reyes Gym. Each team had players participate in the different parts of the mass. It is a delight to see these four teams gather; four different platoons going into different battles but with one mission in mind: to give glory to Old De La Salle.
