Morning Announcements
Friday, August 16, 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.

We stand before you, O Lord, in praise and thanksgiving for all you have given us. We dedicate to you all the events and experiences of this day. We join our voices and hearts to the prayer of other Catholic schools and the Christian community of our diocese as well as to that of Mary our Mother, praising our Father unceasingly and interceding for the salvation of the world.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name.

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.
