Morning Announcements
Monday, May 8, 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:
“I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.
But when he comes, the Spirit of truth,
he will guide you to all truth.
He will not speak on his own,
but he will speak what he hears,
and will declare to you the things that are coming.
He will glorify me,
because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.
Everything that the Father has is mine;
for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine
and declare it 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. Amen.

Loving God, this morning we enter into the quiet and stillness of your presence to begin the day, so that out of this moment we may take with us serenity which will last us through the rough and smooth of this day’s life. We pause to begin this day in prayer with you so that we may be able to continue it with your strength and end it without regret. Hear this, our morning prayer, in the name of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and for the sake of those who need your presence most.
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.

Seniors need to get their college acceptances and all scholarships they have been awarded by this Wednesday to Coach Hoffer. To make things easier, you can email Coach Hoffer at or drop off your information in his office.

AP Testing
AP testing continues today. A list of names, dates, times, and locations are posted by Mr. Mavor’s office. If you have questions, see Mr. Mavor outside of class time.

Mission Trips
To help support the mission trip to the Houma Indian tribe, today and all this week at both lunches, desserts will be provided by the mothers of the fifteen missionaries. For a donation of one dollar you will be able to make your choice at a dessert buffet table in the College Cafe. Those participating in the mission will be serving. Thank you for your generosity.

The lunch for today is red beans and sausage; or sloppy joes, or chef salad.

Words of Wisdom
Today’s Words of Wisdom today come from St. Francis of Assisi, who advised us to: “Take a moment to think of everything you’re proud of about yourself and your life. Then ask yourself if you would have any of this without God’s permission and aid? Give credit where credit is due; praise and thank Him, not yourself.”
Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
