21 September was the International Day for Peace which marks the beginning of the Lasallian International Days for Peace (September 21 to October 21, 2021) with the theme: Rise Together for Peace
. It is a month long global initiative that is run by #LasallianYouth
. At noon we joined Lasallians in Kenya,

Hail Holy Cross, our only hope.

“The Holy Spirit still stirs up thoughts and words of wisdom in the elderly today. Their voice is precious because it sings the praises of God and safeguards the roots of peoples. They remind us that old age is a gift and that grandparents are the link between generations, passing on the experience of life and faith to the young." Pope Francis.
