Morning Announcements
Friday, February 15, 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.

Lord, help us to let the words of our Holy Father Pope Francis sink deeply into my heart: You love me. You have compassion on me. You treat me with mercy. For those reasons, I want to believe, and believe firmly, that everything you send me in my life here on earth is for my good, to help me grow spiritually and to enjoy eternal happiness. Help me to trust in you and in your unfailing mercy toward me!

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.
