Morning Announcements
Friday, December 7, 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.

Father, help us to think about Mary our Mother in this morning’s prayer. She said Yes when you asked her to take a central part in your plan of salvation. She said Yes because she trusted that you loved her and would do great things through her. Help us to say Yes to you today as you ask great things of us through our parents and teachers. Open us as you did Mary to say Yes to the future you have in mind for us.

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. 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.

Next Tuesday we will have our Advent Mass at OLG church before 1st period. Please remember to wear your oxford shirt and tie for this Mass.
