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

O God, you have created all nations and you are our salvation. Through the martyrdom of Saint Andrew Kim and his companions, we ask for their prayers and your blessing to grant us strength that we too may remain faithful to your commandments for all of our lives. 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!
