There are many different ways in which you can support the Presentation Sisters’ mission and ministries. We have set up specific funds that support each of our ministries. We also have options for giving to the Sisters’ most needed programs. This allows donors to support our ministries by allowing your gifts to be utilized by the ministry most needing the support at any given time.
