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

Wisdom of years be yours
Joy of friendships be yours
Wealth of memories be yours
Fruit of endevor be yours
Hope of heaven be yours
Peace of God be yours.
-Irish Blessing

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

Also on Monday, make plans to join your classmates and friends for the movie “Grown Ups,” which will be shown in the LL Gray Gym from 7:00-9:00pm. Concessions and free popcorn will be available. Stay in your PJ’s and bring a cozy blanket to keep warm.
