Morning Announcements
Thursday, November 29, 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.

Lord, I admit that sometimes I am too busy for you. My many priorities and responsibilities consume almost all of my energy. School work is demanding. Family obligations and activities, while good, sometimes drain my energy—not to mention friends, extracurricular activities, and sports commitments I’ve made. What I need from you during Advent is a reminder to slow down each day to reflect on the life you have given me. Slow me down, Lord.
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.
