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

Thank you for getting me through another year.
Thank you for times to stay up late—
and for times to sleep in!
Thank you for a chance
to just take it easy for a while,
and to get some much-needed rest.
Thank you for summer vacation! Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
