Morning Announcements
Friday, November 8, 2019

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.

Dear Lord, bless me with a positive and helpful day today so I can accomplish all of my goals and dreams. Help me to have fun and at the same time to learn everything I need to know today. I believe that with your help my life will improve and with your watchful care I will be safe and free from harm. Be also with my friends and with my instructors as they teach and guide me through this day.

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.
