Of our Patron, St. Augustine of Canterbury

O Lord our God, by your Son, Jesus Christ, you called your apostles and sent them forth to preach the Gospel to the nations: we bless your holy Name for your servant Augustine, whose patronage we claim; and we pray that we and all whom you call and send may do your will, and bide your time, and see your glory: through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

For the Perseverance of All the Companions

O Lord, you have chosen us to be of the number of your companions, and have poured into our hearts the desire to follow you wherever you may lead us: grant us your grace and such fervent love towards you that we all may be faithful to the calling you have given us, persevering in your service in this life, and finally, having passed through the grave and gate of death where you have gone before, may share in your resurrection and be with you forever in your kingdom, where you live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.
