Morning Announcements
Monday, March 9, 2020

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. Amen.

Once again this morning, Lord, we stop our busy daily life for a minute of prayer. Help us all to make use of it. I know I pray best in short and random moments. Each morning, when my feet hit the floor, help me to ask you for one simple grace like, “Dear Lord, help me think of you today.” As I change classes or sit silently in my desk, help me say a short prayer about what I need or about what I am feeling. Give me the grace of bringing you to mind often and offering you my simple greetings.
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.
