Morning Announcements
Tuesday, March 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.

Mary, Mother and teacher of your Son Jesus, through your intercession many people, otherwise poor in intellect, have advanced in knowledge and in holiness by praying to you. Today, in the middle of quarter assessments, we ask you to be the patroness of our studies. We humbly beg you to intercede on our behalf for the grace of the Holy Spirit, so that we may be able to grasp with our intellect, retain in our memory, and express in writing the truths we have been studying over the last nine weeks.

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.

Quote of the Day
Today’s words of wisdom come from former baseball player and coach Tommy Lasorda and can apply to many things beyond baseball. He said that: “There are three types of baseball players and people – those who make it happen, those who watch it happen, and those who wonder what happened.”
Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
