HRA FIGHT SONG
The “HRA Fight Song” was written by HRA Board of Trustees member and former teacher, Mr. Mario L. Bird, esq. The lyrics are sung to the tune of the Notre Dame Fight Song.
Hail, hail, to Holy Rosary
“Ave Maria,” we cry to thee.
Fill our fragile hearts with might.
Shower thy roses on our fight.
What tho’ the odds be great or small,
Our Lady’s prayers will win over all
As her loyal Knights are marching
Onward to victory!
