Almam Matrem salutamus

Today is the One Hundred Thirteenth Commencement Exercises of Catholic Hogwarts.  To celebrate, follows is our Alma Mater, written by the Rt. Rev. Msgr. N. Pinter, Class of 1899. It is sung to a tune written by Fr. L.F. Miller, Class of 1911.

Almam Matrem salutamus,
Josephinum te amamus,
Ter augusta moenia;
Te virtutis tam fautricem
Quam scientiae nutricem.
Dulcis amicitiae.

Joseph Jessing conditorem,
Sacerdotem bellatorem
Fortem, pium, providum,
Prece, laude prosequamur;
Eius robor admiramur;
Grata recordantia.

Josephinum, piam matrem,
Joseph Jessing, carum patrem,
Efferamus laudibus;
Alumnorum, magistrorum,
Agminis discipulorum
Corda, voces consonent.

Sacram indolis formandae,
Sedem, mentis educandae,
Hanc palaestram nobilem.
Caelique terraeque Rector
Augeat, Joseph Protector,
Magnus noster sospitet.
