Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
O God, who raised up Saint John of Capistrano to comfort your faithful people in tribulation, place us, we pray, under your safe protection and keep your Church in everlasting peace. Amen.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

- The Hate U Give Tuesday, October 23 – 3:30-7:00 p.m.
Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds — the poor, mostly black neighborhood where she lives and the wealthy, mostly white prep school that she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is soon shattered when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend at the hands of a police officer. Facing pressure from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and decide to stand up for what’s right.
- 12 Angry Jurors Thursday, October 25 – 6:15-9:00 p.m.
On a hot summer day after a long trial, 12 jurors must decide whether to convict a man for murdering his father. One juror holds out on a conviction and a unanimous verdict is the only one that convicts.
We invite you to bring a framed picture of your loved one with a post-it note on the back with your name and your loved one’s name to Mr. Rogers in the Learning Center (D-105) so we can remember our loved ones who have died. We prefer that your framed photo be wallet sized, 4×6, or 5×7.
