Morning Announcements
Friday, December 6, 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.

Heavenly Father, we all know that Jesus was born in a stable because none of the inns at Bethlehem had any room for him. In our own way, we face a decision. We can make room for Jesus, or we can let the noise and material things fill us up so much that we don’t have any room for him. You created us to be the innkeeper of our lives. We have the freedom to allow people to come and stay in our life. We have the power to ask them to leave. We have the freedom to let you in or keep you out. Give us the wisdom to make the right choice when we choose to make room in our life for Jesus.

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.
