  Called & Gifted II

EdmundSchools.Org






Called & Gifted II is for staff members who have attended a regular Called & Gifted workshop and desire to deepen their involvement in the charism of Blessed Edmund Rice and in educational mission of the Church. Designed from formal and informal discussion with province staff members and from school leaders' input, the following is recommended as ways to deepen this involvement.


Those who have attended a Called & Gifted workshop should consider . . .

Participating in activities designed for the spiritual formation of the rest of the staff or the entire school community.
  • Participate in the planning of staff retreats and regular (daily, weekly, monthly) prayer with the staff.

  • Participate in the planning of the annual Mass of Blessed Edmund Rice.

  • Be Eucharistic Ministers, Ministers of the Word, Music Ministers, etc.

  • Design programs that support the Essential Elements.

  • Support retreat programs.

  • Participate in outreach programs/events.

  • Support the school's Catholic identity.


Facilitating a connection to the larger Edmund Rice Network.
  • Support a sense of the Brother Rice Province: Learn more about the province by keeping the staff and students aware of rest of province, keeping abreast of province events/news. Schools can do this by creating display featuring province schools/ministries; ask participants in Called & Gifted, Interlink, and School Leaders' Meeting to report to school community soon after their events; feature province events in school materials/publications; link to province web site (home); specify regular contact with brother in local community

  • Organize activities with others in province/Edmund Rice Network: Some activity examples include joint outreach projects like connecting with Palma or O'Dea for their Mexico projects; facilitating international communication; education efforts on missions/ministries.

  • Offer in-service, retreat, talk on Edmund, Essential Elements, Edmund Rice Network, etc.; sometimes for Called & Gifted graduates alone; sometimes for staff, sometimes for students. May be best with "outside brother."



Internalizing Edmund through prayer, education, action.


Coordinating immediate follow-up to regular Called & Gifted workshop so recent participants and veterans can process experience.


Attending another Called & Gifted workshop after ten years.



It is recommended that a staff member from each school coordinate local Called & Gifted II efforts.
