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

Guide me lord, you are my heart
you are my strength, you are my hope.
Teach me Lord, and guide my way
I love you more each passing day. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Have a look over the doors throughout the building for the traditional Epiphany blessing that recalls the visit of the magi to the Holy Family in Bethlehem. Mrs. Wojda’s 8th hour prayed over each room and marked the doors with the inscription: 20+C+M+B+19. The letters stand for the traditional names of the magi, or the three Kings: Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar.
