Morning Announcements
Thursday, November 8, 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.

In this month of Thanksgiving, we look beyond our own needs to pray for those much less fortunate than we are. Today we pray for those who go hungry every day. Gracious God, nourish the hungry in our world with hope and call all people to the table of cooperation. Help us to respond generously to calls for volunteers to help at “Feed My Sheep.” Bless the staff of that center in Gulfport, and bless international efforts to work for food security and the elimination of hunger so that all children might know a harvest of justice.

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.
