MORNING ANNOUNCEMENTS, THURSDAY, MARCH 7, 2024

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, Lent is here again and I don’t know that I can say I have changed the selfish patterns I want to change. Help me to recognize what needs realigning in my life and give me the courage to fast and

abstain from the things that get in the way of my relationship with you. Help me to be serious about engaging in the struggle against my selfishness. Amen.

St. Stanislaus, pray for us. 

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

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. Teachers, please make sure cell phones are turned in.
