Morning Announcements
Friday, May 3, 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.

Wonderous God, who watches me with loving eyes, please help me to make this day one of honor and glory for you. Help me to recognize my brothers and sisters in those you put in my life today.
Open my eyes and heart that all that I do today may be for the good of the world and for your greater glory. May I remember that all that I do today is prayer.

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.
