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 we have a special prayer in honor of Veterans Day.

Dear God,
We thank you and we praise you for the freedom we enjoy in our country and pray that our liberties will continue to be protected.
Thank you for America’s heroes, who fought for our freedoms and who have faithfully served our country. We honor all veterans for their sacrifices, their courage, and their integrity
As we celebrate these freedoms today, we ask your blessing on those veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice while defending our country. Bless their families and comfort them with the thankful prayers of a grateful nation.
We thank you for our veterans, past and present. Through the efforts of those individuals, help us continue to promote justice in all nations.

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.

The Quote of the Day today comes from the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, who said, “Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause”.

Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
