Morning Announcements
Monday, March 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. Amen.

Father, Wednesday Bishop Kihneman will come to visit us. Send your Spirit on us to make us open and free to receive what he wants to tell us. Lent reminds us that we need your Spirit, Lord, because we are often “at war” with ourselves and with a selfish spirit that drags us down to the path of least resistance. Help us to use the Bishop’s visit to make up our minds to cooperate with the Spirit coming from You.

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.
