MORNING ANNOUNCEMENTS, MONDAY FEBRUARY 26, 2024

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, our hearts break for our Brothers and teacher who have been taken hostage. Lord, we pray that You will free them so that they can return to their work and their loved ones. We also pray that their captors will see Christ’s love alive in these Brothers of the Sacred Heart so that their wounded hearts are healed and they come to realize Your peace and mercy.   Amen

St. Stanislaus, pray for us. 

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. 

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. Teachers, please make sure cell phones are turned in.

Tomorrow we will have a Lenten Mass at OLG Church at 8:30. Please wear your oxford shirt and tie for this mass.
