On April 25th, 2018, the city of Cork bore witness to a unique event. It was a procession of Presentation Sisters, delegates to the Congregation Gathering carrying lanterns to light their way through the streets of Cork from The North Cathedral to Nano Nagle Place, Douglas Street.
The Twilight walk was organised to honour our foundress Nano Nagle. As the pilgrims began their journey, retracing the footsteps of Nano’s daily journey across the city, they were led by students from St Mary’s High School, Midleton carrying aloft a lighted lantern.
Sisters and local people gathered at 5.00pm at the North Cathedral where students from the Presentation schools (North Presentation Secondary School, St. Mary’s High School, Midleton, North Presentation Primary School, Scoil Aiséirí Chríost, Farranree and St. Brendan’s The Glen) celebrated the life of Nano Nagle through film, song, music and dance.
When the pilgrims arrived at St. Finbarr’s Church on the South Side, Presentation Schools Christ King Secondary School and Bun Scoil Chríost Rí from Turners Cross entertained them with dance and songs about Cork.
From St. Finbarr’s Church the pilgrims proceeded to the Goldie Chapel in Nano Nagle Place where they were entertained by the pupils of the Maria Assumpta Primary School and the prize winning choir of Presentation Secondary School, Ballyphehane.
