Morning Announcements
Monday, September 16, 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.

Lord, it was a busy weekend and this morning I’m tired. Help me to start this week on the right foot. Take my worries from my heart, help me to do my best in my classes and activities, and give me the faith to believe that you walk with me every step of the day. May I become, even in little ways, gradually more capable of thinking, speaking, and acting as would Jesus, your Son, our Lord, model, and Brother, who lives forever and ever.

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.
