Morning Announcements
Wednesday, January 30, 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.

One thing that makes our school a Catholic school is the tradition of our alumni. We see their names engraved on our classroom doors and on the plaques of our buildings. They have built endowments to help finance those of us from needy families. Many returned to campus for the alumni reunion last week-end. We give you thanks for their legacy of faith, of service, and of financial generosity. Give us the desire to follow their positive example and to put to the best use all the advantages they have given us.
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.
