Edmund Rice Schools are proudly part of the mission of the Catholic Church and work closely with local dioceses and Catholic organisations (eg Caritas) to further God’s mission. At the heart of our identity is the life and teachings of Jesus. Taking inspiration in the example of Jesus, the charism of Edmund Rice is a gift to the Church and the world.
