Morning Announcements
Wednesday, August 29, 2018

Please stand for our morning prayer

We remember that we are in the presence of God

Today is the 13th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina’s destruction to our area. So we will say a special prayer in remembrance.

Let us pray together as a school community in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

Compassionate Lord, we pray for those whos lives and livelihoods were devastated by Hurricane Katrina thirteen years ago. We remember those who lost their lives so suddenly. We hold in our hearts the families who were forever changed by grief and loss. Continue, Lord, to bring them consolation and comfort. Surround them with our prayers for strength. Bless those who survived, who have rebuilt, and to this day, help them heal their memories of trauma and destruction.
Help us now to respond with generosity in prayer, in assistance, and with aid to the best of our abilities to any natural disasters as we remember those who so generously and prayerfully assisted our community in 2005.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen

In the name of the Father, and 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.

Gentlemen,

Tomorrow during 2nd period we will have our first fire drill of the school year. Please listen closely to these instructions so that you will know what is expected of you during the drill.

When the alarm sounds you need to immediately stop what you are doing and listen to your teacher’s instructions. When given the go ahead from your teacher you are to file out of the room quickly and in complete silence.

When exiting the building be sure to file down the right side of the stairwell; leaving the left side available for emergency personnel.

Once outside you should move quickly to the fenced-in parking lot on Bookter St. In the parking lot you will need to find the number for your first period classroom. The numbers are painted on the ground. You are to line up single-file in front of your classroom number facing the covered walkway with your backs to the street. You will remain silently in-line until instructed to head back to class.

You are asked to remain silent while filing back into the building as well. And please remember that you are to head directly back to your 2nd period class. This is not a break; no stops for water or to use the bathroom.

Please remember that complete silence and full cooperation are needed from each and every one of you in order for things to go smoothly. Thank you for your attention to this.

Quote of the Day
The Quote of the Day today comes from Bishop Daniel Jenky, who once noted that: “We have nothing to fear, for we have an eternal destiny in Heaven. We have nothing to fear, though the earth may quake, kingdoms may rise and fall, demons may rage, but St. Michael the Archangel, and all the hosts of heaven, fight on our behalf.”

Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
