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

O Lord of the flowers and the birds of the air, let us always give praise and honor, joy and thanksgiving to You for all Your gifts. Hear our
prayers and answer them as You know best for us. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
