Morning Announcements
Friday, September 8, 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.

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 Son, and 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.

On defense, Ja’Kobe Cameron led the way with two interceptions. Devin Gaspard had two fumble recoveries and Henry Hanlon had one. Ryan Tyler, Kameron Cunningham and Joseph Bradford helped stuff the Pirates’ run game.
