Wednesday, April 24, 2019 – Founder’s Day (opens in a new window)

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

God, today we give thanks and appreciation for St. John Baptist de La Salle. We remember with affection the countless Brothers who followed in his footsteps and tread a path less common. We are blessed to be part of this Lasallian mission. May we celebrate our association, our rich tradition and our unique spirituality and charism. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
