The Corps Collect

We say together

"Almighty God, our Heavenly Father,
whose wisdom and compassion know no
bounds, look with favour upon us, the
Members of the Royal Army Service Corps
and Royal Corps of Transport Association.

We beseech you to guide and bless our
endeavours in upholding the finest ideas of
comradeship within our corps family.
Help us to preserve the heritage entrusted
to us by our predecessors, to bring help to
those in need, and to prosper our fellowship
in your Name.

May those who have gone before us, and
we who stand before you today, be united
in this one fellowship by your blessing and
your love.

Through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen".
