Tercentenary of Nano Nagle's Birth
Our foundress, Venerable Nano Nagle was born in 1718 in Ballygriffin, Mallow, Co Cork and 2018 marks the Tercentenary Year of the Birth of Nano.
The official launch of the Tercentenary celebrations took place in Cork on the 24th of December 2017. Christmas Eve is a very significant day as it marks the founding of the Congregation of Presentation Sisters. On this day in 1775, Nano and her three companions, Mary Fouhy, Elizabeth Burke and Mary Anne Collins, came together to begin their new journey.
Across the world during 2018, Presentation Sisters, Friends of Nano, Co-workers, Boards of Management and staff of Presentation schools, hospitals and centres of ministry, students and others inspired by Nano Nagle, will be marking the Tercentenary Year in creative, diverse and prophetic ways.
We will be sharing news of our events and celebrations here so check back soon for updates.
