Morning Announcements
Friday, September 6, 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.

God of all strength, this morning we seek your presence to begin the day, so that from this prayer we may take with us a positive attitude which will last us through the setbacks and the success of this day’s life. PAUSE Give us courage to be patient, not to give up hope when hopes are long in coming true, to accept disappointment without bitterness, and delay without complaint. Hear this, our morning prayer, in the name of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and for the sake of those who need your presence most.

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.
