Morning Announcements
Tuesday, November 6, 2018

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.

Today is election day. Let your people realize that while politics is not their salvation,
their response to You requires that they be politically active.
Awaken Your people to vote for a commitment to justice,
to the sanctity of marriage and the family,
to the dignity of each individual human life.
Let them see that the same hands lifted up to You in prayer
are the hands that pull the lever in the voting booth.

Bless our country, Lord, with citizens committed to the common good
and to the motto we profess: In God we trust.

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.
