MORNING ANNOUNCEMENTS, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 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. 

God, in today’s busy world, it’s so easy to get distracted and off-course. Please help me to keep my priorities in order, so I always give my most important priorities the time, attention and devotion

they deserve. Please align my heart to Yours, so loving and following You is truly my number one priority. Help me also love my friends and family well, and to be a good steward of the gifts and

responsibilities You have placed in my life, without getting distracted by the things You have not. 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.

Next Tuesday we will have a Lenten Mass at OLG Church at 8:30. Please wear your oxford shirt and tie for this mass.

Quote of the Day

The quote of the day comes from multi award winning entertainer Tina Turner – “People think my life has been tough, but I think it has been a wonderful journey. The older you get, the more you realize it’s not what happens, but how you deal with it.”
