Morning Announcements
Tuesday, January 22, 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.

Lord, I come this morning to ask you to shape my attitudes into positive ones. Give me peace, so that nothing may worry or upset me. Give me courage to accept disappointment without bitterness and delay without complaint. Give me joy so that I can spread good will and encouragement to my friends and peers. Hear this, my morning prayer in the name of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and for the sake of the world which he loved to the point of death.

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.
