The Lantern

OUR BEGINNINGS
In the early 18th century new seeds of God's creative dream were planted in the heart of a young Irish woman named Nano Nagle who went on to become the foundress of the Presentation Sisters in Ireland in 1776.

On September 21, 1833, a small ship named The Ariel, sailed through the Narrows of St. John's Harbour. Among the passengers were the first four Presentation Sisters to come to Newfoundland, carrying a vision and spirit of Nano Nage to our shores.

In 1994 the dream of a Christian Life Centre began to take shape among a group of the Sisters. What had been Presentation School closed its doors in June of 1996. As the dream unfolded the newest part of the school was kept intact and appropriately renovated, and become what is now widely known as The Lantern, A Christian Life Centre opening its doors on September 21, 1997, the anniversary day of the arrival of the Presentation Sisters in Newfoundland.

The spirit of Nano and these first four women and all those who followed, continues to guide us as we endeavor, through our Lantern ministry, to meet today's emerging needs in collaboration with numerous others who share their vision.

The Lantern, A Christian Life Centre, welcomes all seekers and offers opportunities for the development of spirituality, the formation of community,and the promotion of justice.
