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

Lord, we give thanks for the Christian Brothers who have answered your call to serve and educate. I pray that the Holy Spirit helps me discern my calling in life. Amen

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