The College Anthem is a "Peace Prayer", credited to have been composed by St. Francis of Assisi, the Patron Saint of the College. The prayer song captures the whole personality of the Saint, who lived and died for others as God's messenger, holding nothing for himself (though born to one of the richest families of Assisi, Italy), in abject poverty, yet in joy and tranquility. Out of such a serene life came forth the "Peace Prayer", which the College has adopted as its anthem; wishes the same peace and tranquility (in spite of our mad rush after material wealth) not only to all its stakeholders but to the whole of creation -animate and inanimate- characteristic of Franciscan Spirituality!

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
St.Francis of Assisi.
