MORNING ANNOUNCEMENTS, FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 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.

Heavenly Father,

Look upon us and hear our prayers during this holy Season of Lent. By the good works You inspire, help us to discipline our bodies and to be renewed in spirit. Without You, we can do nothing. By Your Spirit,  help us to know what is right and to be eager in doing Your will. Teach us to find new life through penance. Keep us from sin, and help each of us live by Your commandment of love. 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.
