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

God, as these final weeks of summer wind down, may I continue to enjoy time with family and friends, while starting to mentally prepare myself for a new school year. Amen

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