Morning Announcements
Monday, March 13, 2017

Please stand for our morning prayer.

We will be led in prayer today by Senior Student Minister Seth Taylor.

We remember that we are in the presence of God.

A reading from the Gospel according to Luke:

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

“Stop judging and you will not be judged.
Stop condemning and you will not be condemned.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give and gifts will be given to you;
a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing,
will be poured into your lap.
For the measure with which you measure
will in return be measured out to you.”
The Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

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

During Lent, Lord, I’m still trying to reflect more deeply each day. I am trying to practice new habits and patterns of prayer, but I get discouraged because it’s going to take a lot more practice to get quiet and to lift my heart and mind to you. And it’s going to take a lot more courage to treat others the way you want me to treat them. Lord, make me more reflective and give me more courage.

We pray all this in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

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, grooming, and haircut check have been completed.
