MORNING ANNOUNCEMENTS, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2023

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. 

Heavenly Father, Thank you for your amazing power and work in our lives, for your goodness and for your blessings over us. Thank you that you are able to bring hope through even the toughest of times,

strengthening us for your purposes. Thank you for your great love and care. Thank you for your mercy and grace. Thank you that you are always with us and will never leave us. Thank you for your incredible

sacrifice so that we might have freedom and life. Amen.

St. Stanislaus, pray for us.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. 

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.”
