Morning Announcements
Friday, December 15, 2017

Please stand for our morning prayer.

We remember that we are in the presence of God.

Let us pray together as a school community in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Today, Lord, is a day of review and preparation for semester exams. Give us the concentration to understand the importance of preparing well. The Christmas break is coming up, but we need your help to avoid distractions and to make deliberate efforts to be serious about study guides, to review, to make up what work is lacking, and to ask for help where we are weak.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.

In the name of the Father, and the of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Saint Stanislaus, pray for us.

Will everyone please join me as we recite together the Pledge of Allegiance.

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Please remain standing until the dress and grooming check have been completed.
