Spring Break- April 1-5, 2019 (opens in a new window)
Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
Lord, God of all creation,
teach us the lesson of spring,
that all creation comes alive –
trees and bushes, flowers and plants –
We welcome you, season of spring. Amen
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
