Spring Break – March 27-31, 2017

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

Lord, God of all creation,
teach us the lesson of spring,
that all creation comes alive –
trees and bushes, flowres and plants –
We welcome you, season of spring. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
