Feast of Saint Agnes
St. Agnes, so young and yet made so strong and wise by the power of God, protect by your prayers all the young people of every place whose goodness and purity are threatened by the evils and impurities of this world. Give them strength in temptation and true repentance when they fail. Help them to find true Christian friends to accompany them in following the Lamb of God and finding safe pastures in His Church and in her holy sacraments. May you lead us to the wedding banquet of heaven to rejoice with you and all the holy virgin martyrs in Christ who lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us! 
Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever!

Some programs have individual teams listed (ex: Varsity, JV, or C), others have individual teams plus a program-wide “class” in order to communicate with all teams at once.
