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

Lord God, may we be grateful for our lot, and compassionate toward all those who are suffering every kind of distress at this difficult time. May we hold back nothing, and hasten to be the ministers of prayer and mercy, like the disciples of Him who went about doing good in times of need. 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.

The letters stand for the traditional names of the magi, or the three Kings: Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar.
