St Mary’s Primary School Young celebrated our Presentation Sisters heritage on Friday 24th November. The guest of honour was Sister Philomena Sewell, the last remaining Presentation Sister in Young. Much loved by our community, Sr Phil embodies the Nano Nagle spirit and staff and students were honoured to be able to celebrate this special day with our patron.
After praying together at the special Mission Day Liturgy, the children set up their class stalls and enjoyed a couple of hours of fun in the sun raising funds for the Binalbagan School in the Philippines. The children’s enthusiasm and generousity was outstanding and definitely in the spirit of Nano Nagle and the Presentation Sisters.
