Morning Announcements
Wednesday, October 24, 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.

During these days, Lord, we are praying for increased respect for life. Give long life and comfort to the doctors, nurses, police, and first responders whose heroism saves lives each day in times of violent attacks and natural disasters. And bless those who stay close to loved ones in your name, mourning the loss of victims.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.

In the name of the Father, and the of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

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.
