The Lay Movement, which consists of Associates and Friends of Nano, is very active in the South West Province of the Presentation Union and meet regularly to support local charities and missions abroad.
The Annual Gathering was held in Ballygriffin in May 2016. Groups from Cork City (South and North Presentation, Farranree and Ballyphehane), Cork county (Bandon and Midleton), and Limerick city meet regularly and actively support charities locally and in areas of mission abroad. They help local communities and involve themselves in local Parish and Church ministries. They are true to the founding charism of the Congregations. The Movement is growing and encouraging new members.
