The Christian Brothers
The Christian Brothers were founded by Edmund Rice in 1802, upon the central premise that education is a necessity for the attainment of full human dignity. For over 200 years, the Brothers have contributed to all levels of education in thirty-five countries. The Christian Brothers have engaged in a continuous process of renewal and focused action so that the Edmund Rice vision and ethos becomes a lived reality in our world today.
