Feast Day of Blessed Edmund Rice - May 5th

May 5th is the feast of Blessed Edmund Rice, an Irish businessman who was so moved by the plight of children in the port city of Waterford where he worked that he founded schools and eventually a religious order to serve them.


To celebrate Blessed Edmund’s Feast Day the our Religious Education Department arranged for a Mass to be celebrated. The Parish Priest Fr Des Ford broadcast the mass on the Parish Facebook page and all  members of the school community and the wider community were invited to participate.


Also to mark the Feast Day the Edmund Rice Schools Trust (ERST) invited its constituent schools to submit a short video illustrating how the school responded so positively to the needs of our students and communities during current crisis.

The compilation of all these videos can be viewed by clicking HERE.
