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

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord.
And let the perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace.
May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
