Morning Announcements

Monday, November 16, 2020

Please stand for our morning prayer.

We remember that we are in the presence of God. 

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

Loving Father, I’m grateful for the friends you have given me. Even if I have only one good friend in my life right now, I’m so grateful. You show your love for me through my friends in ways that I sometimes overlook. They give me advice, sometimes when I need it, sometimes when I don’t, which in both situations is a sign of their care for me. They listen to me complain about my life, which I do too much, and they celebrate with me, even if things aren’t always going well for them. They help me to laugh. And they help me to laugh at myself. That alone is reason to be thankful. Help me to be a good friend in return.

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.”
