Pope Paul VI
Make us worthy, Lord, to serve our brothers and sisters throughout the world who live and die in poverty and hunger. Give them, through our hands, this day their daily bread, and by our understanding love, give peace and joy. Amen

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