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, Lent keeps coming. This is the third week, and I don’t know that I can say I have changed the selfish patterns I want to change. In the weeks remaining of Lent, help me to recognize what needs realigning in my life and give me the courage to fast and abstain from the things that get in the way of my relationship with you. Help me to be serious about engaging in the struggle against my selfishness.

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.

Today we will have Rock Workshop after second period break.

Quote of the Day
Today’s words of wisdom come from Danish author Isak Dinesen, who believed that, “When you have a great and difficult task, something perhaps almost impossible, if you only work a little at a time, every day a little, suddenly the task will finish itself.”

Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
