Morning Announcements
Friday, January 31, 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.

Heavenly Father, you are our pastor. You have given us earthly pastors to reflect your care for us, particularly for our spiritual needs. One of the purposes of Catholic schools is to give us the tools to build up our parishes. Today is Friday, and this weekend we will have the opportunity to pray with the members of our parish and to hear the words of our pastor. Fill us with the desire to become involved in our parish and even to be a youth leader and source of energy and support to our pastor.

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.
