Morning Announcements
Monday, October 29, 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.

During these days, Lord, we are praying for increased respect for life. For immigrants and refugees who left their homeland to flee violence or impossible living conditions, that they find a life-giving place to re-start their lives and assure their children of a future with life-giving possibilities. And that the discussion of immigration reform in our country might always be based on a belief in human dignity and equality.

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.

Quote of the Day
The Quote of the Day today comes from Saint Francis Xavier, who argued that: “It is not the actual physical exertion that counts towards one’s progress, nor the nature of the task, but by the spirit of faith with which it is undertaken.”

Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
