Love ought to show itself in deeds over and above words. St Ignatius Loyola

Hello LOL families and friends!!!! 

Happy Labor Day to all!  I hope you had a nice restive Labor Day weekend.   As we get closer to the busy festivities of Thanksgiving and Advent Season, let us look back and reflect on all the blessings that we have received and shared.  Let us express our gratitude and share the blessings to our least fortunate brethren. 

For all...
