Morning Announcements
Thursday, October 18, 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

Dear God, in the face of tests, projects, and assignments of the next few days, please help us to do our best. All we ask of you is that you help us to focus on the task at hand and to give our best effort. You are the source of all wisdom and success, O Lord. Grant us diligence in our studies so that the pressure of studying for our tests might help us along the way of becoming what you are calling us to be.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen

In the name of the Father, and 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.
