Regina Mundi Secondary School Location – Regina Mundi Secondary School History; Edmund Ignatius Rice (1762–1844) was a Catholic missionary and educationalist. He was born in Callan, County Kilkenny, Ireland, in 1762 and died in Waterford, Ireland in 1844.
In 1802, he opened a school for the poor and marginalised but the children were so difficult to manage that the teachers resigned. He to devoted himself to training teachers who would dedicate their lives to prayer and to teaching the children free of charge.
He is the founder of two orders of religious brothers: the Congregation of Christian Brothers and the Presentation Brothers. The Christian Brothers grew throughout Ireland, England, southern Africa, India, America, and Australia. Today many schools owe their existence to his vision. His mission is continued by more than 1,900 Brothers in over 350 communities educating more than 200,000 students.
