Morning Announcements
Monday, December 10, 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.

Loving and merciful God, as Christmas approaches, and the glories of the heavenly hosts are echoed in our Church, we open ourselves up to you and give you thanks. We are grateful, Lord Jesus, that your story has become our story, and we are eager to celebrate your birth. Continue to give us a deep sense of your loving presence, and help us to take to heart the wonder of your love, that we may walk in your ways and be joyful as Christmas approaches,

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.

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.
