Salpointe Weekly Peek - April 26, 2024

Happy Friday, Lancers!

Father, the glory of creation,You have set before us. With voice and heart, I give You praise, My prayer a song with joyful chorus. In Your image, You created me, Giving both life and soul. May all I do reflect Your love, While giving of self, becoming whole. Amen. Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, pray for us.
