Morning Announcements
Friday, September 7, 1018

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, this morning I come before you with a thankful heart because I have a whole new day before me. I say this, knowing that each day is different and filled with many blessings. Sometimes these blessings are easy to accept, but sometimes life is hard. You bless me, O Lord, even in the challenges I face just as you bless me in the fun and happy moments. As I pray now, I ask you to help me uncover the grace and blessing that is within all the challenges that come my way. Help me to embrace them as your son Jesus embraced his sufferings and cross.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen

In the name of the Father, and 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.
