Dear God, As I thank you for the gift of life, I thank you for the wonderful people I meet along the way. They inspire me, encourage and support me. They help me realize how beautiful and precious life is. Bless them Lord, with good health, security, success, peace and joy. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
