A new province magazine
Words & Deeds
The motto inscribed on the Nagle family’s coat of arms was ‘Not Words But Deeds’. Nano Nagle and the Presentation People who followed her example have always taken these words to heart.
This motto can be said to sum up almost two hundred and fifty hundred years of active ministry and mission as Presentation Sisters spread across Ireland, and eventually to other parts of the world. Wherever the Sisters went, they responded in practical ways to address the needs of those kept poor. They continue this outreach today. Presentation Sisters are currently present in 24 countries.
A change of name
We have changed the title of our Province Magazine to “Words & Deeds” which is rooted in this Nagle motto, as our Magazine is a place where ‘words’ are used to highlight and celebrate the ‘deeds’ of Presentation people in our Province and beyond.
You can read the first issue of Words and Deeds – (January to March 2021) below.

Wonderful seeds were sown and nurtured by ‘Síolta’, the combined newsletter of the former Northern and South Eastern Provinces, that began its life in May 2014, highlighting as it did foundation stories and drawing on the faith and courage of those who have gone before, as well as on the fruits of collaboration and the many creative experiences of commitment to ministry.
The first edition of ‘Bachlóga’ (as the regular magazine of the North East Province) appeared at the end of the summer, in September 2016 offering a place to share, nurture, communicate and celebrate the many ‘green shoots’ that continue to come to full bloom within the Province and further afield.
It is hoped that the articles in this magazine will showcase the many aspects of life and experiences within the Province, as a means of starting new conversations and continuing old ones, as well as generating ideas for celebration and collaboration.
With your help and the continued generous sharing of your work and life Bachlóga will be a rich source of inspiration and information for its readership.
Past and future copies of these magazines are available at the links shown below. Happy reading.
