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

Almighty God, to serve You is to reign; grant that, with the help of Saint Casimir’s intercession, we may constantly serve You in holiness and justice. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

On today’s calendar…
