As we journey together, let us keep in prayer those who are suffering, those affected by hardship and those who have been displaced, both in our communities and around the world. By turning to God and focusing our lives on the teachings of Christ, Scripture reminds us to be welcoming of all those around us. The enclosed brochure highlights some of these verses and includes a reflection.
Our Sisters’ work echoes Pope Francis’ words. We work for justice, believing in the sacredness and rights of all people around the world. Your partnership allows our Sisters to be involved in a multitude of ministries, ensuring that the physical, psychological and spiritual needs of our neighbors will be seen and addressed.
Please visit our website at www.presentationsisters.org to read about the works the Sisters are doing in these areas. The website also features a video of the Sisters praying the Stations of the Cross. We invite you to join the Sisters by praying in your home or during a break in your work day.
Each day in Eucharistic Adoration the Presentation Sisters pray for you. We encourage you to send us your prayer intentions on the enclosed envelope, which we will include in our daily Eucharist and in our prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. We invite you to join us in praying for peace and justice throughout the world.

Message from Pope Francis:
Let us treat others with the same passion and compassion with which we want to be treated. Let us seek for others the same possibilities which we seek for ourselves. Let us help others to grow, as we would like to be helped ourselves. In a word, if we want security, let us give security; if we want life, let us give life; if we want opportunities, let us provide opportunities.
