Morning Announcements
Monday, August 20, 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.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, we offer you our day. We join ourselves to you, present in the Eucharist, so that our self-offering may be pleasing to the Father. We offer today’s actions for an increase of vocations among us to Brotherhood, Priesthood, and lay ministries in the Church. May each of our decisions, each of our thoughts, each word we speak reflect your presence in our school. Strengthen our faith that you love us and grant us the strength of character to respond to your love.

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.
