Morning Announcements
Monday, September 23, 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.

God, our loving Creator, you give us so much, yet we are still incomplete. We need you to shape and guide us. Complete your creation of us. Give us an understanding of life and of the most positive ways to live it. Make us aware of what is in our souls. Beyond ourselves, help us to understand our classmates and the world around us so we can better appreciate all that you have created.

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.
