Friday April 22, 2016 – Earth Day

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

God, creator of all, we join together this Earth Day to renew our awe and appreciation of our precious planet. May Your presence within us empower us to co-create a thriving planet now and into the future. Amen.

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