Thursday, September 11, 2014 – Homecoming Week

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

Lord, today we especially remember those who died in the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001 – and the many people who rushed to the rescue. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us. Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
