Feast of Christ The King

 “Come, you who are blessed by my Father.  Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.  For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me…Whatever you did for one of the least brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”

                              Matthew 25, 31-46

Brother Gerard Alvarez cfc, a previous member of the Christian Brothers Congregation Leadership Team sends this message.
"We lost the city of Queragosh (Qaraqosh). It fell to ISIS and they are beheading children systematically. ISIS has pushed back Peshmerga (Kurdish forces) and is within 10 minutes of where our Crisis Relief International (CRI) team is working....Our team is unmoved and will stay. Prayer cover needed!"

Edmund Rice Education Beyond Borders

EREBB is an International network of Catholic schools educating young people from many different faiths and cultures.

We are inspired by the teachings of Jesus, Gospel values and the spirit of Edmund Rice. In over 20 countries we endeavor to promote global solidarity and offer a transformational education for justice and liberation.

EREBB was inaugurated in May 2014 when leaders representing Edmund Rice Education gathered in Nairobi Kenya to establish an inclusive international network of Edmund Rice educational communities.

Their website links to schools from these 20 countries which are inspired by the teachings of Jesus, Gospel values and the spirit of Edmund Rice. It makes very inspiring reading.
