Morning Announcements
Thursday, January 10, 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. Amen.

Lord Jesus, your mission in this world is awesome. I know that I have a mission too, and that this day is part of it. Help me to know how I can collaborate with you in concrete ways. Through my studies and the guidance offered to me, help me to know what I have been created to do. May your Holy Spirit guide me in making the right choices today so that my life tracks close to yours. Help me to embrace this new day with courage and to do with it what you want me to do.
We ask all these things in Jesus’ name.

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.
