Morning Announcements
Monday, February 25, 2019

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.

Lord Jesus, your mission in this world is awesome. I know that I have a mission too, and that this day is part of it. Help me to know how I can collaborate with you in concrete ways. Through my studies and the guidance offered to me, help me to know what I have been created to do. May your Holy Spirit guide me in making the right choices today so that my life tracks close to yours. Help me to embrace this new day with courage and to do with it what you want me to do.

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.
Tomorrow we will have a Birthday of Father Coindre Mass in the Brother Peter gym before 1st period. Please wear your oxford shirt and tie for this Mass.

Quote of the Day
The quote of the day today comes from President Harry Truman, who once said that, “I come to the office each morning and stay for long hours doing what has to be done to the best of my ability. And when you’ve done the best you can, you can’t do any better. So when I go to sleep I turn everything over to the Lord and forget it.”

Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
