We were sent this lovely photo of St Patrick’s and St Brigid’s College in Northern Ireland who celebrated an ‘Edmund Rice Day’ today.
The cards they are holding up (showing the Icon and Edmund’s prayer) are a present from the English office to them. Their teacher, Mr Dale Krause, formerly of St. Ambrose College continues in his mission to creatively celebrate the Charism of Blessed Edmund in his new school.
True network collaboration and well done St Patrick’s and St Brigid’s. We hope you had a wonderful day.
If any of the other schools would like to organise such an event both Mr Krause and the office would be delighted to help out.
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.
