Monday, April 16, 2018 – Online Learning Day

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

Psalm 92 : 1-4
It is good to praise the Lord
and make music to your name, O Most High,
to proclaim Your love in the morning
and Your faithfulness at night.
For You make me glad by Your deeds, O Lord;
I sing for joy at the work of Your hands.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
