Salpointe Weekly Peek - March 22, 2023

Happy Spring Break, Lancers!

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit
Risen Lord,
You are always in our midst, but we do not always recognize you.  Call us by name, let us know you in the breaking of bread, so that we may follow you in your risen life. You live and reign forever and ever.
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, pray for us. 
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
