Just the other night when we commenced conducting interviews for Year 7 2019, one of the student applicants asked about our college prayer and if we recited it each morning. A good question to ask! He seemed intrigued about the ‘contents’ of the prayer and who wrote it. The college prayer was written in 2013 by the College Chaplaincy Team, and can be found in the opening page to the college diary and is written into the Salesian Prayer Book, which sits on the prayer table in each homeroom. For those families who may not be familiar with our college prayer here it is.

College Prayer

God our Father, we are thankful for all

your blessings given to us at Salesian

College Sunbury. We thank you for St. John Bosco, who

presents us with the gospel of joy in Jesus


Christ, through reason, religion and loving

kindness.
 

Through your Holy Spirit, grant us the wisdom

and energy to engage positively in education,

and using all our gifts and talents

to seek excellence in life.
 

Grant to us the spirit of compassion

in our service to the poor and the

marginalised.

 

Bless us Lord, our families and friends,

as we live to witness and proclaim your love

to the world.
 

Through Christ our Lord. 

Amen
 

Mary Help of Christians, pray for us!

St. John Bosco, pray for us!
