The Sisters first came to live in Ballygriffin in 1984. They were warmly welcomed and supported by the people of Killavullen parish and in turn contributed in various ways to the life of the parish. Prayer groups, bible classes, school and adult retreats, and days of reflection were hosted and often led by the Sisters
Nano Nagle Centre became a Heritage Centre for the Presentation family world wide. Over the years, Sisters and Associates from every corner of the earth found a home in Ballygriffin, while the local people continued to venerate and draw inspiration from their own local â€˜saint.
