The following is the official prayer of the Newman Catholic Students’ Society, adopted during the 2013-14 academic year:
We come before you, the students of the Newman Catholic Students’ Society.
Give us minds to know you, hearts to seek you, and feet to follow you.
May your presence in the midst of this community unite us in bonds of faith and friendship and send us out to be your disciples.
Fill our hearts with the joyful hope of your Resurrection and set us ablaze with the love you manifested on the Cross.
Grant us peace to persevere, wisdom to guide the way, and strength to follow your call.
With heart speaking unto heart, O Lord, lead us, Kindly Light.
Blessed John Henry Newman, pray for us. Amen.
Prayer to the Holy Spirit:
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful. And kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And you will renew the face of the earth. Let us pray. Lord, by the light of the Holy Spirit you have taught the hearts of your faithful. In the same Spirit help us to relish what is right and always rejoice in your consolation. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom, pray for us!
St. Thomas Aquinas, patron of students, pray for us!
St. John Henry Newman, pray for us!
