News, Events & Arts

“To take the air, to go for a stroll, to enjoy a friendly chat, to play music, or sing ... are such honest diversions that the only thing needed to utilize them well is simple prudence, which gives to all things their rank, time, place and measure.” - St. Francis de Sales

There is always something happening at DeSales.
