Morning Announcements
Monday, December 17, 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.

Holy Spirit, you give gifts of knowledge and understanding. Keep me calm during today’s exam. Help my memory, that I may remember what I learned and recall it clearly. Guide me during testing periods and strengthen me against any temptation to cheat or to resist what I have been taught.
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.

Quote of the Day
Today’s words of wisdom come from Thomas Jefferson, who said: “Whenever you are to do a thing, though it can never be known but to yourself, ask yourself how you would act were all the world looking at you, and act accordingly.”

Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
