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 peace, this morning we enter into the comfort of your presence to begin the day, so that out of this moment we may take with us peace which will last us through the rough and smooth of this day’s life. PAUSE Help us to find peace so that nothing, not even our mistakes, may worry or upset us, all through today. 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.
