Mission Development Statement

The Presentation Sisters’s Mission Development Office shares the Mission of the Presentation Sisters, with a spirit of love and joy. We collaborate and actively serve with Presentation people, and together, we work for justice, alleviate oppression and promote human dignity.

We love sharing and connecting our Mission and Charism with others! We work to preserve the Congregation’s history, and are responsible for the communication, marketing, friend(fund) raising and engaging Presentation People at all levels. We love visiting with partners and invite you to contact us with questions or ways we could be of service. Through dialogue our voice becomes clearer. United we are stronger. Justice flourishes.
