It is 21 November, Presentation Day. Once again my thoughts spin back through the years (many, many years now 😏)! My thoughts go back to our school days at St Patrick's Convent Schools and our days spent with Nano Nagle's Presentation Sisters, PVBMs. To the stories of Nano and her little group who ministered to and cared for the poor. Stories of the establishment of the Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary and how, in 1833, three brave and selfless Irish Nuns set out from their Convent in Galway. After a stormy Atlantic Crossing they landed at St John's, Newfoundland, and there they established the very first Presentation Convent outside of Ireland.
I imagine, like me, you remember all or most of the stories but if you would like to refresh your memory, you will find quite a few posts to help. Just go to that little search box on the top left side of the blog and enter either 'Nano Nagle' or 'Presentation Day'. You will find enough to keep you reading for a little while.
