The center of life for the Presentation Sisters is prayer. It is through this relationship with Christ that each sister finds strength and support for her ministry. Presentation community life allows the sisters to share this spiritual grounding with each other as they live out their vocational call.

Mass Times

In addition to our special individual times of prayer and praise, we spend time each day sharing in prayer and taking part in Mass as a faith community.

We invite you to nourish your spiritual life in the Presentation spirit by joining us for Mass at our Blessed Sacrament Chapel at Presentation Convent. Mass times may vary from week to week and times are subject to change. Please call the Convent at 605-225-0420 for additional information regarding Mass.

In 1906, Bishop O’Gorman asked the Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary to begin perpetual Eucharistic Adoration for the needs of the people in the Sioux Falls diocese. We continue this practice of daily Eucharistic Adoration as we gather daily in our Adoration Chapel; spending time in this sacred space offering prayers for the intentions of those who have requested prayer, for the needs of the people of the diocese, the nation and the world. (IT SAYS WE DO THIS DAILY, BUT DO NOT HAVE LIST ADORATION ON WEDNESDAYS??)

This practice has been an essential element of Presentation life in community. A facet that keeps this prayer ministry current and relevant is our prayer line ministry. Individuals throughout the world contact us and request that we pray for their intentions.
