Next Thursday, 21st November is the Feast of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Cathedral of Christ the King, Mullingar, has a side altar dedicated to St Anne, which beautifully depicts this feast in one of Boris Anrep’s mosaics. The Presentation Sisters first came to Mullingar in 1825 and opened a school here the following year. Their  foundress, Nano Nagle from Cork, was declared Venerable by Pope Francis on 31st October this year as part of the process of canonisation. Mullingar

The Presentation Junior and Senior Schools will celebrate the feast day with School Liturgy in the Cathedral at 1.30pm on Thursday next 21st November. All parishioners along with the children from the Presentation Schools, their teachers and parents, are invited and welcome to attend.
