ER College and University Campus Initiatives - North America

As students inspired by the Charism of Edmund Rice, perhaps through earlier education in an Edmund Rice Network School, participation in the ACTION program, or an ERCB Mission Emersion Experience, we come together on college and university campuses to share our commitment to prayer, community and service. Formally or informally, in large or small groups, we encourage each other in promoting presence, compassion and liberation in the spirit of Blessed Edmund Rice.

Associates of Edmund Rice - North America

Women and men with various roles in family, professional, church and community life, we seek to deepen our engagement in the charism, the spirit, and the legacy of Blessed Edmund Rice. We participate in a formation experience leading to a commitment to live the Gospel message through our present calling in life. We make time for prayer, seek opportunities to work for justice, and engage in charitable and educational efforts on behalf of the poor and marginalized. We renew this commitment annually, usually in the context of a retreat.

The Edmundian Society - North America

The Edmundian Society includes men who devoted some portion of our lives as members of the Congregation of Christian Brothers. Whether we left as postulants, novices, temporary or finally professed, a bond endures. While each individual’s journey is unique, the time spent in the Brotherhood remains a major influence in one’s life. The Edmundian Society is a fellowship whose principal expressions are spiritual vitality, mutual support, and social sharing. Our primary purpose is to better develop our spirituality in the vocation we are now pursuing. The common bond that was once our life has reunited us in collegiality, support and service.

Timirí Éamainn Rís - Europe

The Messengers of Edmund Rice, Timirí Éamainn Rís, are a community of men and women scattered throughout Ireland who support each other in living out the compassion and courage of Blessed Edmund in their daily lives. The group was founded in Dublin in 1989 by a small group of Christian Brothers and former members of the Congregation.

How can a person get involved? 
You could simply go to a group near you or even form a group yourself. Dick Fields, one of the founders of Timirí and current secretary, is more than willing to pass on details of venues and times of meetings and to give a helping hand in starting a group. Forming a group is as easy as inviting a few people to meet, reflect and pray together.

Many of these men and women look forward to the annual gathering which takes place usually at Emmaus in Dublin around the end of October. A newsletter is sent out at regular intervals to those on the Timirí mailing list.

To place your name on this list please contact Dick Fields (telephone 01 839 1396 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
