Posted on 20 December 2016

Edmund Rice Education Beyond Borders is the global network of Edmund Rice schools, present in over 20 countries, endeavouring to promote global solidarity and offer transformational education for justice and liberation.

Jenni, our CEO, attended the recent Congress, which took place in Kolkata, India in October and upon her return, she presented the silk to the community of Edmund Rice House, where Blessed Edmund Rice lived from 1831 to 1838. The silk was presented in recognition of the educational legacy of the Christian Brothers and the history of Edmund Rice education.
