Book Description
Through the chaos and despair of Ireland’s eighteenth century there came a woman of extraordinary strength, courage, and character. Honora “Nano” Nagle witnessed the horrid conditions of her home country and made it her personal mission to improve the lives of the Irish people. She pioneered a courageous ministry directed to teach and tend to Ireland’s impoverished citizens, and in 1775 she founded the Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In the years following her death, the Congregation has carried her love and generosity around the globe.

Not Words, But Deeds is a tribute to the life of Nano Nagle and a brief history of the Presentation Sisters before and after their arrival in Newfoundland in 1833.

About the Author
Sister Corona Wyse was born in 1917 in Placentia, Newfoundland, and now resides at the convent in Gander. Having been educated by the Presentation Sisters through elementary and high school, in 1934 she heard the call to join them and serve God in the teaching profession. She taught in Grand Falls–Windsor and Corner Brook, and she served as director of religious education with the St. John’s and Stephenville Roman Catholic School Boards. Her teaching also took her to the United States to the Graduate School of Education in the Catholic University of America, Washington, DC. She then worked as director of education with St. Pius Parish, Bowie, MD. In Roseau, Commonwealth of Dominica, West Indies, she taught at the Convent School and she held retreats and workshops at the Family Life Centre. Professionally, she holds masters degrees in educational administration, spiritual guidance, counselling, and pastoral studies. She also holds a doctorate in philosophy of education.
