Edmund Rice England - Presence . Compassion . Liberation

Congregational Leadership Team visits European Province.

As part of their visitation to the European Province, Edmund Rice England was delighted to put on a concert with music from 9 of our schools on Friday evening at St. Ambrose College.

Brother Julian McDonald spoke on behalf of the CLT praising the ‘creative and inspirational’ way that the Charism of Edmund Rice is being lived out in our schools and ministries.

All Brothers and guests of the Network were impressed by the quality and range of music which we heard live from bands, orchestras and choirs and from our impressive choirs via video-link.

Thanks from the office goes out to all who attended and especially to the students and staff for their efforts to entertain us so beautifully.

Prayer of Thanks for Blessed Edmund Rice

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.

Amen.
