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

We pray that more men and women will answer the call to be Lasallians in our world, working to alleviate ignorance and build-up the dignity of all peoples especially the poor. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
