Gathering in the spirit of Blessed Edmund Rice.
The SERV concept began to take shape during the 31st Christian Brothers Congregation Chapter held in Nairobi in March 2014. Through informal discussion and interaction with delegates from the Edmund Rice Global Network who were in attendance I learned about Edmund Rice societies, groups and initiatives in various schools in South Africa, North and South America and Australia. Their aim was to encourage students to engage and interact with each other and find expression of the spirit and charism of Edmund Rice in diverse and imaginative ways. I felt the possibility of establishing such a group or society in Midleton CBS would be worth exploring also.
