School Prayer

Loving God, we gather in your name,
And ask that your Spirit be with us-
A Spirit of wisdom and courage, of gentleness and peace.

Be with us in all that we do
And help us to make St John’s College
A truly Catholic and Marist educational community,
Living in family spirit,
Promoting the love of work.
Being present to one-another,
Showing solidarity with those in need,
Doing everything in a spirit of simplicity-
And in the way of Mary.

We make this prayer in Jesus’ name,
And through the intercession of Mary our Good Mother,
John the Apostle,
Marcellin Champagnat
And of all the saints – Amen.

Mary our Good Mother – pray for us.
St John the Apostle – pray for us
Saint Marcellin Champagnat – pray for us

 

School Song

Caritas Christi Urget Nos
On eagle’s wings we fly
Caritas Christi Urget Nos
To hold our heads up high

St John’s upon the hilltop
Christ’s cross above it’s door
We’ll follow in His footsteps
St John’s for evermore

Follow Chanel Martyr for the Truth
Marcellin Guide of Youth
Pompallier the Prince of Zeal
Roncalli Man of Peace

St John’s upon the hilltop
Christ’s cross above it’s door
We’ll follow in His footsteps
St John’s for evermore

For truth and learning we achieve
In prayer and manliness;
And God’s own Hand will guide us on
To heavenly happiness

St John’s upon the hilltop
Christ’s cross above it’s door
We’ll follow in His footsteps
St John’s for evermore

Caritas Christi Urget Nos
Saint John’s will us inspire
Gold, white and blue will keep us true
Our Guiding Star to be.

St John’s upon the hilltop
Christ’s cross above it’s door
We’ll follow in His footsteps
St John’s for evermore
