Morning Announcements
Wednesday, August 14, 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 of wisdom and might, we praise you for the wonder of our being, for our mind, body and spirit. Be with us at the start of this new school year. Bless us, our teachers, and the staff that cares for our needs. Give us strength and grace as we grow; fill us with knowledge as we develop our minds and search for understanding. Give us peace when we complete our work well and disturb our conscience when we take it easy and become lazy.

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.
