Morning Announcements
Tueday, September 5, 2017

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.

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 ask all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and 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.
