Morning Announcements
Friday, August 30, 2019

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.

Loving Father, united in the Heart of Jesus your Son, we offer you all we are and all the work we will do today in our classes and activities. May the love you have poured out into our hearts by the Holy Spirit overflow through our words and actions into the hearts of all those we meet during this school day. Help us to accept in a positive way the challenges, the corrections, and the rules which being a student entails. May our response to them draw us closer to the example of sacrifice given to us by Jesus, your son and our Savior, who lives and reigns with you forever.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of 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 and grooming check have been completed.
