Celebrations in New York for Venerable Nano
On 9 December 2013 in New York, Venerable Nano Nagle was honoured at a United Nations Interfaith Service, hosted by the International Presentation Association (IPA) NGO Representative at the UN, at the Tillman Chapel.
It was a momentous occasion for the Presentation Sisters, Associates, Friends of Nano, co-workers and all those across the world who are inspired by the life, vision and mission of Nano Nagle.
May Nano become for people across the globe, as she is for us, a model of faith for those who are thirsting for God, a model of hope for those who live ‘in the shadow of darkness’, and a model of love for those whose lives know little warmth or compassion.
– International Presentation Association
St Patricia Anastasio President of the Presentation Sisters New York gave this reflection on the life and work of Venerable Nano.
The Keynote address was given by H.E. David Donoghue, Ambassador and Permanent Representative, Permanent Mission of Ireland to the United Nations.
