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.
Lord, this is the beginning of a new day. You have given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or use it for good. What I do today is important, because I’m exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving in its place something that I have traded for it. I want it to be
· gain, not loss;
· good, not evil;
· success, not failure; so that I will not regret the price I paid for it.
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.

Aid to Mexico Earthquake Victims
We have been given a great opportunity to directly aid the victims of Mexico City’s recent Earthquake. A local citizen is loading an eighteen wheeler and will drive it directly to the worst hit areas next weekend. Many local groups are participating by gathering items needed. Saint Stanislaus has been asked to contribute clothes, shoes, etc. If you have any clothes that you would like to donate, bring them in a plastic bag and take them to room 221 by next Friday, October 6th.
Please check the Activities Board for the following activities: RC Club, and International Club.
The lunch for today is shrimp creole; or chicken tenders; or chicken taco salad.
Today is the birthday of senior Parker Slade. Happy birthday Parker! Have a great day today. Sunday is the birthday of sophomore Bradley Darby. Have a happy birthday on Sunday, Bradley.
Quote of the Day
The Quote of the Day today comes from St. John Vianney, who argued that: “Prayer is to our soul what rain is to the soil. Fertilize the soil ever so richly, it will remain barren unless fed by frequent rains.”
Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
