Morning Announcements
Friday, November 16, 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.

Lord, today we give you thanks for the life and example of Saint Stanislaus as we make our school day which we will make a day of celebration dedicated to him. Bless all the students who, each in his own way, gives extraordinary example to us by their character, kindness, faith, and love of you. Bless the Brothers, teachers, coaches, and prefects who help us by their teaching and discipline to become men of character. Bless those who make the institution of St. Stanislaus College the school it is, from the Board of Directors to the Facilities staff. And finally, on this day bless our Alumni and friends who support us with their contributions and their unconditional support.

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.

Feast Update

Please pay attention to the presentation before trivia in your 1st period classes – this will list where each grade goes for field day after the prayer service. Students can still turn in notecards as they come into the gym for Family Feud to enter to win a gift card.
