THE SCHOOL PRAYER

Since the publication of Newman's prayer in our last issue, a complete version of the form used at School in the 1930's has been discovered among material contained in the archives in Huyton Library. The first portion is particular to the School and the remainder by Cardinal John Henry Newman.


Almighty God,

We remember the Founder of the School, its Benefactors, its Governors, its Teachers and its Scholars, as well former as present, and all Others who hold office in the same.

Support us, O Lord, all the day long of this troublous life, until the shades lengthen, and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then Lord, in Thy mercy, grant us safe lodging, a holy rest and peace at the last through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen
