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

As members of creation, we live and die according to the cycle of life that is common in all the world. We pray today especially for those in our midst who suffer from sickness and death. Amen

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