Morning Announcements
Friday, November 9, 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.

Dear God, help us to live by your will daily. Strengthen our ambitions and weaken our hesitations. We thank you for the blessings that you have given us. Help us to use our gifts in the way you truly intended. Steer us in the right direction and help us to remain steady on our course to eternal happiness with you.

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.
