Morning Announcements
Wednesday, November 7, 2018

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, help us to look beyond our own needs to pray for immigrants. To you, O Lord, we entrust the mothers, fathers, and children who will spend this day migrating in fear, longing for some security, for something like a home. May they reach their journey’s end where someone opens up to their stories, their needs, and their orphaned children. Direct them to persons and communities who will show mercy and give them hope for a new life despite the challenges of opening their arms in welcome.

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.
