Morning Announcements
Wednesday, November 20, 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, help me to grow in appreciation for all the things you created. For the sweep of orange, pink and gold that brighten the morning sky. For the smell of the sidewalk after a thunderstorm on a hot summer afternoon. For the way that the frost makes crazy patterns on windows in the winter. For the amazing smells of springtime. While I’m at it, I’m also grateful for the beaches, the different moods of the water; and the ancient spreading oak trees with their beards of moss.

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.

Quote of the Day
The quote of the day, today, comes from the recently canonized Saint John Henry Newman, who believed that: “We should ever conduct ourselves towards our enemy as if he were one day to be our friend.”

Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
