Morning Announcements
Friday, May 10, 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.

With mothers’ day coming up this weekend, we pray again today, Lord, for our mothers, who have given us life and who care for us with steadfast love. Send your Spirit upon us to teach us how to show them our reverence, service, and affection. May the celebration of Mothers’ Day be an occasion for us to be especially attentive to them in imitation of all they do for us, we pray.

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.

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.
