Morning Announcements
Tuesday, January 8, 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.

Abba, Father, today we ask you to bless our teachers, who have responsibility for us. Their job is not an easy one and we rarely thank them. Bless us, too, as we try to learn. We need the gift of understanding because what we study is complex and often overwhelming. Once you have blessed us, show us how to respond to you and to those who teach and guide us, you who live and reign forever and ever.

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.
