PRESENTATION JUBILEE YEAR
Sunday, April 26 marks the 225th Anniversary of the death of Nano Nagle in 1784. In 1775 she founded the Presentation Congregation at Cove Lane, Cork.
Across the five continents Presentation Sisters, associates and friends will celebrate the Jubilee Year if Nano’s death. This Jubilee Year was launched on Christmas Eve 2008 and will continue until Christmas Eve 2009. The Presentation Sisters came from Kilkenny to Mooncoin in 1830 to begin a school in the village.
We, the Sisters, invite the people of Mooncoin to let us know how they would like to celebrate this event in our parish, by bringing to life the new hope and enjoyment in these days of recession, as Nano did in the years of the Penal Laws in the 18th century.
We will be delighted to hear your ideas by phone, 895114, or by post, by the end of May.
There will be a pilgrimage to Cove Lane, Cork, during the summer.
Books on the life of Nano Nagle are available on loan from the Convent.
