Venerable Honora Nagle (c. 1718 – 26 April 1784), affectionately referred to as "Nano" was a woman ahead of her times. She embodied a fierce sense of social justice and equity that drove her to advocate for women, children, and the poor. Nano operated hedge schools in defiance of penal law successfully and went on to form the order of the Presentation Sisters (PBVM). Presentation Ministry Center is a ministry of PBVM.
