During this time of sacred remembrance,
we bring before God the names of our
loved ones who have passed from this life.

We acknowledge our enduring love;
we express our hope that they be eternally blessed,
and we share our desire to be reunited with them
in the everlasting glory made possible through
the Resurrection of Christ Jesus.


Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us!

Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever

In the news…

We will celebrate Mass today for the feast of All Souls Day. This is a special Mass when we remember and pray for all who have died. Mass will occur during WIN #1 in the Florance Center with school chaplain, Fr. Kevin Kenney ’78.

At this Mass, we invite you to lift up your loved ones who have passed away in three different ways.

  1. Bring in a Framed Photo. The Mass will incorporate a traditional Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) ofrenda table in front of the altar. We will display the framed photos of those who have passed on the ofrenda table to remember and pray for them during Mass. Photos can be dropped off in the Lasallian Ministry office or theology classrooms. Please mark the back of your photo with your full name so we can return it to you after Mass.
  2. Names in the Book of Remembrance: All theology classrooms will have a booklet where you can write the name of your loved ones who have passed. We will include this booklet in our ofrenda table and prayers.
  3. Offer a Candle at the beginning of Mass: Have you lost a loved one in the past year? We would like to give special remembrance to those who have died in the past year by bringing forward a candle in their honor at the beginning of Mass. If you would like to bring forward a candle for your loved one, please complete this brief form.
