Inspiration

In the work of Edmund Rice Mission we draw our inspiration from Edmund Rice who, over 200 years ago, founded the Christian Brothers and the Presentation Brothers.
Edmund was a successful businessman who, following the tragic loss of his deeply loved wife was led to see that the world of Waterford Ireland was marred by poverty and injustice. Having had the experience of meeting young men locked away in prison for petty crimes and despairing at their unfulfilled potential, Edmund experienced a deep call to work towards the liberation of this harsh and cruel world. He recognised that an education built around the practicalities of enabling these vulnerable young people to engage in a more fulfilling life, would bring about such liberation.
