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

Blessed are the Peacemakers,
for they shall be known as the Children of God.
But I say to you that hear, love your enemies,
do good to those who hate you,
bless those who curse you,
pray for those who abuse you.
To those who strike you on the cheek, offer the other also,
and from those who take away your cloak,
do not withhold your coat as well.
Give to everyone who begs from you,
and of those who take away your goods, do not ask them again.
And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

During the month of November, Christians around the world remember their loved ones who have died. For our All Saints Day liturgy, we are putting together an ofrenda table, a traditional Day of the Dead ritual, and invite all students, teachers, and staff to bring in a framed picture of a loved one who has passed away. After the liturgy, we will move the pictures to the 2nd floor trophy case in B building so we can remember our loved ones throughout November.

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.
