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.

In today’s prayer, Lord Jesus, I hope to be less self-centered. Bless the Brothers of the Sacred Heart who are living in a school in Amatongas, Mozambique, where they care for sixty high school students who are orphans due to war and disease. Bless the orphans themselves, so that the education they are receiving will give them hope for a brighter future. And do not forget the orphaned children who have not yet been found and who may be confused and discouraged

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.

Next Monday we will begin 3rd Quarter Assessments, with English/Computer/and Psychology AP.
