Morning Announcements
Friday, February 7, 2020

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.

Merciful Father, at the start of this Friday, we may think that nothing important has happened in our hearts this past week. Help us to understand that each day you are working in our spirit quietly and tirelessly guiding us to feel your love. Today we recognize that fact and say to you, “Stay with us, Lord, at the close of this week, during the weekend that is coming, and during the weeks ahead of us, so that we may know that your active love for us will never end.

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.
