Morning Announcements
Monday, January 28, 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. Amen.

Lord, there are believing students nearby at public schools in Hancock County who are looking for ways to express their faith and to pray during their school day. We have the opposite problem. Prayer surrounds us so that we take it for granted and sometimes just go through the motions. Help us today and during this whole week devoted to Catholic Schools, to stop when it is time to pray, to turn our hearts to you, to take a true posture of prayer, and to speak to you in spirit and in truth.

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.
