Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
Christ is risen and forever lives to challenge and to change
all whose lives are messed or mangled, all who find religion strange.
Christ is risen!, Christ is present making us what He has been,
evidence of transformation in which God is known and seen
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Please note, the Saturday afternoon show was originally scheduled at 4:00pm, but was pushed back one hour to accommodate for a schedule conflict involving some cast and crew members.

Let’s show the Islanders our support! The louder the crowd is, the better it looks/sounds for the judges! That, alone, will up our score. We have an extremely creative routine based in space. I think we can place this year! #StepIsLIFE #ONYX #SSSStompDown2017
