EDMUND RICE BIRTHPLACE: First Year students from St. Mary's Academy CBS recently visited the Birthplace of Blessed Edmund Rice as part of their Religion Course.
The tour stopped in his homeplace in Callan, Co. Kilkenny and proceeded to Waterford city. Students were given a tour of the Edmund Rice International Heritage Centre. The centre now stands on the grounds of the original CBS on Mount Sion. The students enjoyed the tour immensely and discovered a lot of information about the founder of the CBS. And look forward to putting their new found knowledge to good use in the future.
