Morning Announcements
Friday, August 31, 2018

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

God of mercy, we offer to you the day before us: the time we will share in conversation and study as well as our moments of quiet reflection; our feelings of joy and peace as well as our problems and stress. Help us to bear them with patience. United to the heart of Jesus, your Son, may we live this day faithful to our call to become men of character, servants of compassion, and sources of hope to those around us.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen

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.

Teachers please check your email carefully. There are a number of subs today due to the senior breakfast.

Quote of the Day
The Quote of the Day today comes from Saint John Paul II, who preached that: “The greatest deception, and the deepest source of unhappiness, is the illusion of finding life by excluding God, of finding freedom by excluding moral truths and personal responsibility.”

Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
