Morning Announcements
Friday, April 12, 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. Amen.

Loving God, Your eternal watchfulness keeps me safe from harm. I am filled with a great happiness
when I feel your endless love for me. Thank you for your care for me, one of your children.
I ask you to protect from harm those who will soon be your children, joined in the joy of your church.
Please continue to pour out your blessings on all of us who have been given the life giving waters of baptism.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name.

In the name of the Father, and the 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.
