Like foundress Nano Nagle, Presentation Sisters focus their ministry efforts on meeting unmet needs. Initially, the need was for education. Today, the needs present themselves in less traditional forms. From educators to parish ministers, spiritual directors to justice advocates, outreach coordinators to hospital chaplains, Presentation Sisters bring a unique energy and dedication to a wide array of ministries in 10 states, the District of Columbia and Bolivia. They work on the margins of society and the heart of Christian life. The common thread that runs through each of these ministry efforts is a desire to joyfully go where need calls most loudly.
As an apostolic congregation, Presentation Sisters are dedicated to ministering to the needs of the people while living among them. They share in vision of Nano, who dared to dream of a better word for the sick, poor and marginalized. As they continue to go where need calls most loudly, the sisters hold dear the words of Nano, “If I could be of service in saving souls in any part of the globe, I would gladly do all in my power.”
