Morning Announcements
Tuesday, January 15, 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.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, we offer our studies of this day to you. We desire to imitate your attitude of cooperation with the Father’s plan so that the steps we take today might be in the direction of his loving will for us. Your path was one of Brotherhood; you called yourself Brother to all; help each of us to discover the grace of Brotherhood in our friendships with our fellow students and to become a brother to everyone, especially to the neediest, you who live and reign forever.

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.
