Thursday March 24, 2016 – Holy Thursday

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

God, we give thanks as we enter the Easter season that, through Christ’s death, we might know forgiveness, that our lives might be reborn, and that we glorify your name now and forever. Amen

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