Donhead Prayer

Dedicated to the memory of Michael Edwards R.I.P.

Dear Lord
Help us:

To follow Christ as the model for our lives
and see God more fully in all things.

To care for everyone
and show respect to all we meet.

To help those who need our help most,
especially those with very little.

To use our talents to the best of our ability
for the greater glory of God.

We ask this through Jesus Christ Our Lord,
Amen.

Donhead Song

On my breast I bear the emblem
Of a scarlet sacred heart,
Which I wear with all the pride
That sets the Donhead boy apart.
In the words of Saint Ignatius
I lift my voice and sing,
Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam
In this and everything

In our music, play and study,
And in all we do and say,
We hold true to this inscription
That defines the Donhead way
On the field of sporting conflict,
In our brilliant blue and white,
Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam
Will help us through the fight.

Give us strength to do our best, Lord,
Grant us grace and sight to see
That through kindness and compassion
We can share your victory.
So we follow Saint Ignatius,
We raise our hymn of praise,
Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam,
Long live these Donhead days.

Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam,
Long live these Donhead days.
