Morning Announcements
Wednesday, April 3, 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.

Loving and merciful God, I am so aware of my sins and weaknesses. But as painfully aware of my faults as I am, let me also remember your tender love, your gentle and limitless forgiveness. I come before you filled with pain and guilt but look into your eyes and see the forgiving love I so long for in my life.
Help me to forgive the same way. Teach me to love as you love.

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.

This Friday we, along with all the Brothers’ Schools, will have a meal of fasting at lunchtime. In Religion classes, Brother Bernard will be explaining this gesture of sacrifice and solidarity with our students in Mozambique who are suffering from a Katrina-strength hurricane that hit them two weeks ago. The brothers urge you to be as generous and positive as so many were to us when we were in need.
