This week we celebrate the feast of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary and remember all the Sisters of the Presentation Order who lived, taught, and worked in our community over the years. Founded by Nano Nagle, known as the Lady of the Lantern, due to the late night visits she would make to those in need, her memory still lives on today.  May God bless and protect the Sisters of the Presentation Order and may those who are deceased receive the reward of their goodness.
