Morning Announcements
Monday, December 9, 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 God, no matter how full our lives may feel, we still find ways to make room for the people we want to let in. We are always ready to welcome new people who we think will bring us some kind of blessing or benefit. It’s why we have the friends that we do. It’s why we form relationships at school, in our church, and in our neighborhood. Open our hearts this Advent to be attracted to Jesus and to the blessings he can give 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.

Important Announcements
This is a reminder for all students to pay off your lunch balances by next week. Please check with Ms. Bellone in the cafeteria if you are unsure if you owe a balance.

Also, remember your service hours are due Wednesday of this week. If you do not turn your service hours in you run the risk of a major exam penalty and making up the time during exam week.
