Morning Announcements
Monday, November 5, 2018

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.

O God, as election day approaches, we acknowledge You as Lord
not only of individuals, but of nations and governments.
We thank You for the privilege of being able to organize ourselves politically.
Help us to realize that political loyalty does not have to mean disloyalty to You.

We thank you for Your law, which our Founding Fathers acknowledged
and recognized as higher than any human law.

We thank You for the opportunity that this election year
puts before us to exercise our solemn duty not only to vote,
But to influence countless others to vote,
and to vote correctly according to our conscience and your Law.
and to the truth that human rights begin when human Lives begin.

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.
