Morning Announcements
Wednesday, September 25, 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.

Today, Lord, and all this week we pray for the Brothers of the Sacred Heart, who are celebrating the anniversary of their foundation in France 198 years ago. Our prayer today is one of thanksgiving. Many of our dads, brothers, and uncles have been taught by the Brothers at St. Stanislaus. We thank you for the way their lives have been enriched by coming into contact with the Brothers. We also see the Brothers’ cemetery every day and give you thanks you for the good example of dedication of the men who are buried there. We are grateful for the mark of manly faith which they have left on our school.

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.
