Morning Announcements
Thursday, December 6, 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.

Loving Father, we could put together a long list of reasons why we ought to open the door and let Jesus in.
Scripture tells us that Jesus wants to give us “every spiritual blessing in the heavens” (Ephesians 1:3). He wants to give us his joy, his love, his peace, his grace, and his mercy. He wants to give us his confidence, his power, his clarity, and his wisdom. All of this wealth is there waiting for us when we let him in. Help us to reflect on this throughout this day and the days of Advent.

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

In the name of the Father, and the 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.
