Lincroft, NJ – De La Salle Hall has not been able to have its usual remembrance ritual when a Brother dies due to recent lock downs.
The community recently celebrated a special “Prayer of Remembrance” for each of the deceased in the lounge. Br. John McMahon summarized the eulogies and, while he read each memorial narrative, the picture of the deceased was carried around the room so each Brother could easily see it.
When the picture was returned to the table, a candle was lit and Brothers had the opportunity to share personal memories. It was a very meaningful and appreciated ritual for the Brothers.
