Morning Announcements
Monday, October 28, 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.

This week we continue praying for increased respect for life. Lord, I’m not always as thankful as I should be for my own life, but today I want to be. Give me more insight and appreciation for so good a life, and for the energy, health, and friendships that make me feel so alive. I am happy I was born. Without you I wouldn’t be here. Without you no living thing would be here. Human life is your masterpiece, and being a masterpiece of your creation is the greatest gift you’ve given me.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.

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.
