Morning Announcements
Monday, December 2, 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.

Lord, since the Black Friday blitz, so many voices and images compete for our attention, our time, and our energy. There are literally thousands of advertisements out there promising to make us happy, to help us get ahead, or to solve our problems. We know you are trying to reach us, too. Help us as we prepare for Christmas to put our materialistic instincts aside to listen for you in prayer and in the generous people around us.

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.
