Bishop Kevin Vann dedicated and blessed a statue of the Venerable Nano Nagle on St. Patrick’s Day at St. Irenaeus Catholic Church in Cypress.  Nano Nagle founded the Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Ireland and was a pioneer in Catholic education.  She was born in 1718 in Cork, Ireland and died on April 26, 1784.  Nano Nagle  was declared venerable on Oct. 31, 2013 by Pope Francis.  The celebration also honored the loving service of the Presentation Sisters at St. Irenaeus.

    Been a parishioner split at this parish. Most stayed, but some left for St. Hedwigs in Rossmoor and other flew to St. Pius in Buena Park. St. Patrick’s Day was not very celebrated in and around greater Dairy Valley.
