Morning Announcements
Tuesday, December 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.

Mary, Mother and teacher of your Son Jesus, through your intercession many, otherwise poor in intellect, have wonderfully advanced in knowledge and in holiness by praying to you. Today, during test week, we ask you to be the patroness of our studies. We humbly beg you to intercede on our behalf for the grace of the Holy Spirit, that we may be able to grasp with our intellect, retain in our memory, and express in writing the truths and concepts we have been studying over the last four months.
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.

Quote of the Day
Today’s words of wisdom come from Pope Francis, who recently observed: “With due respect for the autonomy and culture of every nation, we must never forget that the planet belongs to all mankind and is meant for all mankind; the mere fact that some people are born in places with fewer resources or less development does not justify the fact that they are living with less.”

Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
