Edmund Rice CentreWaterford City Waterford - Ireland South
The centre's visions and aims are to promote and support the story of Edmund Rice and the Christian Brothers today in a way that challenges people to engage with the mission of Edmund Rice in a contemporary world. The Centre is based in Waterford City. Edmund Rice’s vision and action established an education system beginning in 1832 which is now widely spread among first and third world countries. A key feature of the heritage centre is the new chapel for pilgrimage and prayer, as well as housing Blessed Edmund Rice’s remains. The chapel overlooks the city of Waterford and incorporates the stained glass windows from the former Blessed Sacrament Chapel. In addition to these features, the monastery's ground floor is also available for conferences, workshops and meetings in well appointed conference rooms, with catering facilities also provided.
