Morning Announcements
Tuesday, February 19, 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.

Today, Lord, I ask your pardon for myself and for all of us, your sons, who are in error, in doubt, in refusal, or in ignorance of your loving mercy. We acknowledge that we often offend you by our thoughts, words, and actions. Send us your Spirit to guide us to see ourselves as you see us, as your sons in need of mercy and forgiveness.

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.
