Alumni Memorial Mass
In the fall of 2015, Bishop England celebrated the 100th graduating class in the history of the school. With this exciting milestone, we had a unique opportunity to start a new tradition, known as the 100 Year Prayer, which unites our Bishop England family as a community in prayer. Every year, as we celebrate with a new graduating class, we remember the Bishop England High School class that graduated 100 years earlier and pray for the dearly departed souls of not only these students, but all of our students who have passed away.
Each year, we will introduce this new tradition to the current senior class, asking them to remember the class of students who attended Bishop England High School one hundred years earlier. In 2017, we started entering the names of the students in the class of 1917 in a book called the Bishop England High School Alumni Association Book of Remembrance. Each year, we add the names of the next class.
The names collected and included in the Book of Remembrance have been submitted by the Bishop England High School community for the sole purpose of prayer intentions. The student lists, including names of graduates, non-graduates, and transfer students, are organized by classes and do not represent official Bishop England High School graduate lists. The purpose of publishing these lists is to enable our Bishop England family the opportunity to remember our deceased students specifically by name and pray for all of our students who at one time walked the halls at Bishop England High School.
100 Year Prayer
Please extend your guiding hand over me.
I pray that you will grant me:
Ears that will hear your call,
Eyes that will see you in others, and
A merciful heart that is
reflective of your Son, Jesus Christ.
Today, as I remember all of my friends, teachers, and classmates,
I ask that you keep them all in the palm of your hand, especially (name intention).
I also pray for the sake of Jesus’ sorrowful Passion,
you will have mercy on the souls of the dearly departed students
who attended this school 100 years ago, especially (name student’s name).
Send the gifts of the Holy Spirit to guide me throughout my life.
Grant me the grace of spiritual discernment.
Help me follow the path in this life you’ve created for me.
Lead me to eternal life with you
in your heavenly kingdom.
Jesus, Mary, Joseph we pray, help us on our way today.
