Morning Announcements
Monday, December 3, 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.

Lord God, no matter how full our lives may feel, we still find ways to make room for the people we want to let in. We are always ready to welcome new people who we think will bring us some kind of blessing or benefit. It’s why we have the friends that we do. It’s why we form relationships at school, in our church, and in our neighborhood. Open our hearts this Advent to be attracted to Jesus and to the blessings he can give us.

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.

Quote of the Day
Today’s words of wisdom come from Pope Francis, who recently observed: “With due respect for the autonomy and culture of every nation, we must never forget that the planet belongs to all mankind and is meant for all mankind; the mere fact that some people are born in places with fewer resources or less development does not justify the fact that they are living with less.”

Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
