We have had a great start to our Year 7 induction sessions with groups from all our senior schools. This year’s pandemic has meant we have been obliged to meet all of our Year 7s ‘virtually’ – a different way of working but one that is proving to be very successful so far.
We have been so impressed by the preparation work they have done on the life of Edmund Rice, the work of the Christian Brothers and how the Eight essentials translate into your schools today.
We are so looking frond to meeting the rest of the groups over the coming month. We also wait with great anticipation the views that they are preparing to send to the other 200,000 young people in Edmund Rice schools across the world.
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.
