Morning Announcements
Tuesday, March 10, 2020

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. Amen.

Lord, as I examine myself about how I fail to do the good that I want to do, I take this moment of prayer to remind myself that you are rich in mercy, and that you are patient with me. You never give up on me. I give you thanks that you are not a god of vengeance, but you are slow to anger, forgiving, and you keep your trust in me whatever happens. Have mercy on me, Lord. I trust in your goodness.
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.
