Morning Announcements
Wednesday, March 13, 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.

Lord Jesus, when they asked to name the “greatest” commandment, you named two. You put together loving God with my entire being and loving my neighbor as myself. Lord, I’m not there yet. I’m still in the stage of looking out for number one. Wake me up during the day today, Lord, and help me to do a random act of kindness or to close my mouth to listen with interest to a friend speak about what matters most to him or her.

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.
