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

God, As we join together in celebration of the Earth, we know that there are many issues that thwart our efforts and responsibilities to Your creation. May we be open to learn and put into practice efforts to save our environment. Amen

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