(Prayer offered on the Public Address system for the entire La Salle Academy educational community on Tuesday morning, 29 May 2018)
Let us remember that we are in the Holy presence of God. Good morning La Salle and De La Salle.
Ben: Our last days as middle school students are fast approaching. Our years at De La Salle have been fun, adventurous, and full of life-shaping experiences, from decorating someone’s locker for their birthday to last minute cramming for a quiz and morning meetings. Middle school has taught us many lessons, whether it be preparing us for high school to helping us realize and appreciate how precious time is.
Andrew: As we move on into our high school years with enthusiasm we will always remember how our middle school experience has shaped us into the people that we are. Teachers at De La Salle have worked very hard before, during and after school to give us the tools that we need to advance into high school and to become good, responsible, educated people in society. You probably have heard this quote by Ferris Bueller before but I feel that it is appropriate to say it in this prayer: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while… you could miss it” …
Let us pray, God give us the strength that we need to face fear head on and to stop and look around at life before we miss it all and ponder upon how fast time goes by.
Ben : St. John Baptist De La Salle…Pray for us.
Andrew : Live Jesus in our hearts…Forever.
