Sweet voices of Waterford schools mark very special occasion

Waterford's Presentation schools celebrated the tercentenary of Nano Nagle’s birth

The sweet voices of primary and secondary school students from the Presentation in Waterford echoed through the cathedral as both schools came together for a special mass.

The talented students were joined by teachers, retired teachers, parents and friends to celebrate the tercentenary of Nano Nagle’s birth.

The choir mesmerised the congregation with a medley of hymns and songs from the musical Woman of Welcoming Heart, written in honour of the foundress of the Presentation sisters.

“This memorable occasion was a most beautiful collaboration as both schools came together to express their thanks to the Presentation sisters through mime, prayers, reflections and readings,” a Presentation spokesperson said.

“It was a great honour to have Most Rev Bishop Alphonsus Cullinan with us to concelebrate the mass with Canon Edmond Cullinan and we were delighted to have Sr. De Lourdes representing the Presentation community as she said the final prayer.

“We have a very busy year ahead with many more activities and competitions planned to bring the Presentation schools together to mark this special year.”
