Morning Announcements
Monday, October 15, 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

Lord, help me know your will for me.
God of all Goodness, this morning we enter into your presence to begin the day, so that out of this moment we may take with us serenity which will last us through the ups and downs of this day’s life. PAUSE Help us to find love, to listen carefully for your words of love, so that all through today I may love, without being attached to myself, and that nothing may make me bitter or unforgiving. Hear this, our morning prayer, in the name of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and for the sake of those who need your presence most.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen

In the name of the Father, and 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.
