MORNING ANNOUNCEMENTS, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 2024

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. 

Almighty God,

You sent forth your Son as a beacon of hope for all people. As a Teacher, He has given us the prime example of the importance of education. As disciples, we look to him for inspiration and strength.

Thank you for the many people who have dedicated their lives in service to our Catholic Schools.

Thank you for the teachers and administrators who sustain our schools. Thank you for the parents who have given support and witness to the importance of Catholic education. Thank you for the students who work hard to further their education. Bless all our Catholic Schools and the many people who advance our mission. May our schools be a home for those who seek to grow in openness, faith, love, intellect and commitment to justice. In your name, we pray. Amen.

St. Stanislaus, pray for us. 

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. 

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. Teachers, please make sure cell phones are turned in.
