We have decided to award the Charism Awards for Leadership by post this year. This year, maybe more than ever, it is important that we recognise the staff, governors, leaders and volunteers who have shown leadership in the promotion of the Charism of Blessed Edmund. Look out for citations and comments as they come in. We will not be able to celebrate the awards in Church or at our annual garden party but will hope to invite receivers and families to a celebration event later in the year when gatherings are possible again.
O God, we thank you for the life of Edmund Rice.
He opened his heart to Christ present in those oppressed by poverty and injustice.
May we follow his example of faith and generosity.
Grant us the courage and compassion of Edmund as we seek to live lives of love and service.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
