Morning Announcements
Friday, January 18, 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.

Dear Lord, today we pray for those serving in the military.
Thank you for all those who serve to protect us as well as for the most precious gift of freedom. We ask your special blessing upon all the members of our Armed Forces, especially those who are serving away from their families, in foreign lands, and in the midst of conflict. Give wisdom to those who lead our nation and all nations of the world, that violence and war may give way to peace and justice. Comfort all those who have lost loved ones in war and fill us all with the peace that only you can give.

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.

Quote of the Day
Today’s words of wisdom come from St. Francis of Assisi, who advised: “Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received… but only what you have given: a full heart, enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice, and courage.”

Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
