Mission and Ministry
The Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary are united in their Gospel mission, seeking to promote hope, justice, freedom, and human dignity to all they meet through their many and varied ministries. Like their foundress Nano Nagle, Presentation Sisters bring a unique energy and dedication to these ministries: education, pastoral work, health care, and social services.
Presentation Sisters continue the very important work of Catholic education in elementary and high schools, while becoming more involved in the growing field of parish religious education. As educators, Presentation Sisters follow in the footsteps of Nano Nagle, imparting Christian values not only by what they say, but by how they live.

Health and Pastoral Care
Presentation Sisters minister to the sick in nursing homes, hospitals, hospices, and programs for the homeless. Whether they are providing hands-on emergency care in an inner-city hospital or comforting
those dying at home in a rural hospice program, Presentation Sisters bring to their work the love and compassion of Jesus.
Parish and Retreat Ministry
Presentation Sisters are engaged in pastoral ministry in many parishes in Massachusetts, New Jersey , and New York. These ministries differ from parish to parish, depending on the needs of the people and the programs developed by the parish. Presentation Sisters in parish ministry respond to these needs by conducting RCIA classes, visiting the sick and imprisoned, comforting the grieving, providing outreach to the Hispanic community, giving spiritual direction... doing whatever is needed in the name of Jesus.
