Morning Announcements
Thursday, January 31, 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, after you washed your apostles’ feet, you said, “Do this in memory of me.” We understand without any doubt that you want us to serve others as you did. Renew in us during this week of Catholic schools our sense of service. We know we can do more for others, but we get so tied up in our own problems and selfishness that we procrastinate, putting service off until tomorrow or next month. Today, put into us a heart of service and a concrete determination to do service in memory of you.

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.
Athletic Results
Congratulations to our Soccer Rocks who defeated Florence High School last night 2 – 0 in the first round of the state playoffs. Goals were scored by Brandon Elkins and Austin Schruff set up by Alex Koons. It was an outstanding defensive effort by the entire team. The Rocks move on to play at East Central on Saturday afternoon.
