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 Jesus, visitors on our campus have no problem knowing that this is a Catholic school. The statues, the crosses and crucifixes, as well as the religious images in the classrooms, all show outsiders that we believe in you. Give us the grace today to make sure that our Catholic faith is not just external. May others see in us kindness for one another, gestures of service, words of encouragement, and genuine prayer so that they will know that this is a Catholic school all the way to the heart.
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.

Congratulations to our Basketball Rocks, who wrapped up the regular season with a come-from-behind 43-37 victory over Pass High. Despite a large early deficit, the team remained poised and stayed together, two characteristics evident throughout their current 9 game winning streak. The Rocks were led in scoring by Brandon Bordelon and Dallas Payne with 13 while Luke Ladner added 11. The Rocks finish in a tie for first place in the district and will take the court again to compete for the district title in the 8-4A tournament. This finish ensures them a spot in the playoffs after a 5 year absence. Congratulations to the players for their hard work and dedication.
