Morning Announcements
Thursday, September 19, 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, as this school day begins, help us focus on at least one area of our educational life in which we need to work a little harder or have a more positive attitude: a particular class, sport, or club. Give us the will to do more than just get by. Show us how to consciously use our mind, body, and spirit as a step forward to know our truest calling. Guide us, Lord, that we may always walk in your footsteps.

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.
