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

O God, who grant us to venerate
the memory of the Martyr Saint Januarius,
give us, we pray, the joy of his company
in blessed happiness for all eternity. We pray that we may live lives of faith and courage,
just as he did until the very end.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Students who update to iOS 12 before given permission will have restrictions placed on their device and all personal apps will be deleted for the remainder of the semester.
