Br Martin, our Congregation Leader, with Sr Mary Deane, Congregation Leader of the Presentation Sisters, at a celebration to mark Pope Francis’ declaration of Nano Nagle as Venerable
Since we share a common founder with the Christian Brothers it’s only natural that we collaborate with the Brothers on various projects. Also, since Edmund took the rule of Nano Nagle’s Presentation Sisters we have a close relationship with the sisters. We call this collaborative relationship the “Nano-Edmund Family“.
Our collaboration has found different expressions over the past number of years.
