Your pilgrim heart shall urge you still one pace beyond
and love shall be your lantern flame.
– Raphael Considine
WHO ARE WE?
Friends of Nano are inspired by the life and legacy of Nano Nagle, a Cork woman who responded with courage to the suffering of her times with ingenuity, love, perseverance, prayer and action. Nano’s actions were daring for her times and unique to her personhood. This is a good model for today’s independently minded person.
WHAT DO FRIENDS DO?
Through the discipline of attention and prayer we are sensitised to the needs of our times and live and act in ways that bring about a compassionate and caring society that we sense is already possible.
By working together, we are stronger and the reach of the Friends can be far and wide.
WHERE ARE WE?
We, exist in many towns and cities in Ireland. We exist internationally in many countries. Since the very beginning, Nano has had friends. Wherever the Presentation Sisters have travelled, they have always had Friends.
INTERNATIONAL PRESENTATION LAY MOVEMENT FOR MISSION
In 2011, in Nano’s birthplace, the International group of Friends and Associates, supported by the Presentation Sisters worldwide, adopted three values.
