In this year, 2020, when all the world is affected by Covid-19, we come together on 5 May to celebrate the life of Edmund Ignatius Rice. Edmund’s Christ-centred vision and life’s work were seeds that have grown into the many communities of education, ministry and brotherhood throughout the world. We, as Edmund People, are called, just as he was, to look outside our window in this time of isolation and lockdown: to look for those who most need support. We are also challenged, as Edmund People, to look for and be signs of hope in this world through our words and actions.
In the package:
You will find four key resources based on the Edmund Rice example of prayer, community and action. Following those key resources, you’ll find a range of activities that could also be selected for classroom and ministry involvement in Edmund Rice Day 2020.
