Morning Announcements
Monday, May 15, 2017

Please stand for our morning prayer.

We remember that we are in the presence of God.

A reading from the holy Gospel according to John:

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Whoever has my commandments and observes them
is the one who loves me.
Whoever loves me will be loved by my Father,
and I will love him and reveal myself to him.”
Judas, not the Iscariot, said to him,
“Master, then what happened that you will reveal yourself to us
and not to the world?”
Jesus answered and said to him,
“Whoever loves me will keep my word,
and my Father will love him,
and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him.
Whoever does not love me does not keep my words;
yet the word you hear is not mine
but that of the Father who sent me.

“I have told you this while I am with you.
The Advocate, the Holy Spirit
whom the Father will send in my name—
he will teach you everything
and remind you of all that I told 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. Amen

Dear Lord, another weekend has come and gone. I am thankful for the good and restful times that you gave me and for your ongoing protection over me and my family. As I begin a new week, I ask that you place in my heart powerful motivation and desire to use wisely all of my gifts. Give me energy of mind and heart, that I may grow just a bit more during this week in maturity and in hope. Watch over us all, O God, and keep us safe under the wings of your love.
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.
