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

We pray that, like Pope Francis, we may joyfully proclaim Christ, who died and rose for our sake. Amen

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

Students, you will watch as Pope Francis makes history when he speaks to a joint session of Congress this morning. Report to first hour. At 8:45am, you will be dismissed to watch the speech. Ninth and 12th graders will report to the Main Gym. Tenth and 11th graders will report to the Florance Center.

Even though we will be gathering in the gym and Florance Center this is NOT a Pepfest. Quiet, respectful behavior is required by all students so each individual can gather the information to share in class discussions.

The Theology and Social Studies departments will help prepare you with questions to reflect upon as you watch Pope Francis. You will have time to share your thoughts throughout the day in your Theology and/or Social Studies classes.
