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

Lord, we pray for those who are NOT in need. Your love is for everyone – not just the needy – those who think they are not in need still need your love. And also we pray for those who serve without recognition and give up their lives to God. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
