Edmund Rice was born in Ireland in 1762 and died in 1844.

Edmund was a successful businessman who was drawn to the plight of the poor especially children who had no hope of gaining an education. Edmund opened a school for the “street kids”, but because the children were difficult to manage the teachers resigned. Edmund and some of his friends took on the role of teachers. The religious congregation of the Christian Brothers and Presentation Brothers developed from this humble beginning and continue to serve the educational needs of the poor and marginalised throughout the world.

Edmund Rice was courageous, faithful and hard working. He helped those in need and strived to make the world a better place.
