Morning Announcements
Thursday, January 24, 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.

Creator God, this morning we enter into your calming your presence to begin the day, so that out of this moment we may take with us serenity which will last us through the rough and smooth of this day’s life. PAUSE Help us to find wisdom so that today we may not make any foolish mistakes, that we may know when to speak and when to keep silent, when to act and when to refrain from action. Hear this, our morning prayer, in the name of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and for the sake of those who need your presence most. Amen.

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.
