''Season of Creation''

Sr Lois invites you to join her in this annual Christian celebration to pray, listen and learn together about the care of our common home. This year’s theme is ‘’Let justice and peace flow’’. The symbol used is ‘A mighty River’’.

This ‘’Season of Creation’’ starts on 1st September, the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, and ends 4 October, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology.

"Sessions of one hour will take place at 7:30 on Wednesdays in September (6, 13. 20 and 27) with a closing session on Wednesday October 4th.  We will learn and celebrate the "Season of Creation" and the Pope's letter Laudato Si as it relates to our everyday lives."

First session; Oak Conference Room, 7.30pm Wednesday 6 September: Information: Sr Lois (085 854 7488)

We are a living heritage centre located amongst the breath taking scenery of the Blackwater Valley. The centre marks the birth place of the foundress of the Presentation Congregation, Nano Nagle.

Nano Nagle Birthplace provides tranquillity and spirituality and is the perfect location for those looking for some time out in a natural peaceful setting.

Our mission is to promote a vision of eco spirituality - the natural interconnectedness of everything, which leads to personal transformation and a sense of responsibility to our earth and to all living beings.

We run retreats, courses, school programmes, day away programmes and host conferences & events. Visitors can come and do a heritage & organic farm tour, cosmic walk, work on an allotment and simply enjoy the natural beauty of the place.

Our base is a 32-acre certified organic farm with dining facilities and self-catering accommodation that operates to the highest environmental standards.
