Morning Announcements
Thursday, August 9, 2018

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.

Father, our Creator, you want what is best for us. We are starting a new semester. Give us a stable mind to perform to the best of our ability. Help us to study with concentration and dedication. Teach us how to use times of silence so that we may process the knowledge we have been taught. Let us sleep peacefully at night so that we awaken each day refreshed for the new lessons that come from your creative plan for us. We pray this in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.

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

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.
