Morning Announcements
Friday, October 4, 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.

Heavenly Father, we pause to give you thanks for the gifts you have given to us and to our school as we near the end of the first quarter. Thank you for our joys and successes on the playing fields, in the pool, and on the cross country track. Thank you the grace of your presence in our chapel. Thank you for the dedication of our teachers in our classrooms and for the lives they have given to learning. Help us to keep gratitude in our hearts throughout this day, next week and every quarter thereafter.

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.
