The English, Northern Irish and Irish round advocates assemble for the second time to learn in depth and put into practice advocacy campaigns. We wish them success on the back of the first leg in Cork last academic year and look forward to the next meeting of great minds from across the province which will take place on home soil.
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.
