Morning Announcements
Monday, March 11, 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, this first week of Lent is the time you give me to begin my Lenten patterns, to re-adjust my priorities, and to make use of more reflective time each day. Help me make this week a time to abstain from those things that block my relationship with you. Help me look at the deeper things inside of me, like my anger or how I treat others, so I can ask forgiveness and forgive, in just the way I like to be forgiven.

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.
