Morning Announcements
Wednesday, March 20, 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.

Holy Spirit, you give gifts of knowledge and understanding. Keep me calm during today’s testing. Help my memory so that I remember what I learned and put it clearly on paper. During testing periods, strengthen me against any temptation to cheat or to resist what I have been taught.

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.

Quote of the Day
We will close our announcements today with the Prayer of St. Francis. “Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.”
Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
