Morning Announcements
Friday, August 23, 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.

Dear God, today I thank you for the gift of my education. It is a triple gift. From you I’ve received talents and intelligence. From my parents I’ve received the financial and emotional support I need to succeed, and from my teachers I receive professional and personal instruction. Though school can be challenging at times, I know that this time in my life is a stepping-stone into the future you have planned for me. Over time, help me to know my purpose and calling while each day I do my best to develop the gifts you have given me.

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.
