Morning Announcements

Thursday, September 24, 2020

Please stand for our morning prayer.

We remember that we are in the presence of God. 

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, bodies, and spirit as steps toward knowing our truest calling. Guide us, Lord, that we may always walk in your footsteps. 

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.”

Quote of the Day

The Quote of the Day today comes from St. Thomas of Villanova, who had this insight: “Dismiss all anger and look into yourself a little. Remember that he of whom you are speaking is your brother, and, as he is in the way of salvation, God can make him a Saint, in spite of his present weakness.”

Teachers please take this time to check attendance in PowerSchool and do the dress and grooming check.Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
