Morning Announcements

Monday, February 19, 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, help me know your will for me

Let your light shine in the depths of my heart

that I may know what you want me to do with my life.

Help me believe that you have a special plan for me.

Lord, I know I pass through this life only once;

help me decide how you want me to make a difference.

Like our Blessed Mother, give me the wisdom to hear your voice

and the courage to answer your call.

Above all give me peace of mind and heart.

I offer this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

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.

 

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.
