Recordemos que estamos en la presencia de Dios
En el nombre del Padre y del Hijo y del Espiritu Santo.

Te doy gracias Dios por otro dia, te pido que me ilumines en mis tareas en la vida y que me guies hacia ti. Te pido Dios que protejas a mis hermanos/hermanas en sus vidas freneticas y que me des fè en tu existencia divina. Enseñame a amar a mis hermanos y hermanas. 

San Juan Bautista De La Salle…Ruega por nosotros
Viva Jesus en nuestros corazones…Por siempre

Remember that we are in the presence of God
In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

I thank you God for another day, I ask you to enlighten me in my tasks in life and lead me to you. I ask God to protect my brothers / sisters in their frenetic lives and to give me faith in your divine existence. Teach me to love my brothers and sisters.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

In the news…

During National Latino Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15) we recognize the contributions made and the important presence of Latino Americans to the United States and celebrate their heritage and culture. Latinos have had a profound and positive influence on the United States through their strong commitment to family, faith, hard work, and service. They have enhanced and shaped our national character with centuries-old traditions that reflect the multiethnic and multicultural customs of their communities. Latino Heritage Month, whose roots go back to 1968, begins each year on September 15, the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile and Belize also celebrate their independence days during this period. Stay tuned for more activities and information throughout the month.
