Presentation Sisters

From Ireland to America



Our Mission Nano Nagle Story of the Icon Ministries Living Gifts Form



Fancy Letter - The Catholic religious congregation of the Union of Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, generally known as The Presentation Sisters, was founded in Ireland in 1775, and has established significant presence in the United States since 1854. The Union now includes 1600 Sisters in communities in the following locations: Australia, Papua New Guinea, Thailand, Africa, China, New Zealand, The Philippines, Latin America, India, Pakistan, North America, England, Ireland and Slovakia.

Nano Nagle, our Foundress, who spent her life and resources in order to improve the quality of life of those around her by daring to provide a Catholic education to the poor, continues to be our inspiration.

In this new millennium, new needs beckon us forward. There is a great necessity to raise awareness of the reality of poverty, and to respond to the needs of the poor and the powerless. We ask for your prayers and support to help enkindle new fire among us, which will enable us to continue to respond generously to God's call.

Within these pages, we hope to acquaint you with our history and our many areas of ministry, and invite you to share in our efforts in any way possible. Use the enrollment form on this website to enroll yourself or your loved one(s) in the perpetual prayers of the Presentation Sisters.
