Presentation Sisters 150th Anniversary
Giving thanks to God.
Congratulations to the Presentation Sister of the Mission House in Lucan. It was on March 19th 1867 - The Feast of St. Joseph that the first group of Sisters arrived in Lucan. Here they established the two excellent schools we have today Scoil Mhuire Primary and St.Joseph's Secondary. Generations of Lucan Girls owe their excellent formation and education to the Sisters.
Although they have formally withdrawn from their involvement in the schools they remain the trustees and the Schools continue in the ethos and tradition they established.
The Sisters remain in Lucan, and the convent is now the Mission House for the order in Ireland. Each year they welcome sisters from around the world who come to study and enjoy some relaxation.
We will have a Mass of Thanksgiving for their 150 years in our community on the actual anniversary of their arrival
Sunday March 19th at 11.00 am in our church.
