Blessed Edmund Rice Prayer

O God we thank you for the life of Blessed Edmund Rice.
He opened his heart to Christ present in those oppressed by poverty and injustice.
May we follow his example of faith and generosity.
Grant us the courage and compassion of Blessed Edmund as we seek to live lives of love and service.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

We ask Blessed Edmund to guard and protect our school community, our families, friends and all working in hospitals caring for those sick with COVID-19.
