Morning Announcements

Monday, January 7, 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 God, as another school day begins and as we get new homework assignments, it is important for us to realize that you are the source of all knowledge, and that when we learn something about creation, we are also learning something about you, its Creator. Give us the faith to be able to make the link and to praise you for what we learn about you today, you who live and reign forever and ever.

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.
