The Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary were founded in Ireland in 1775 by Mother Nano Nagle. They came to Watervliet, New York in 1881 to establish a home for orphaned children.
Today, the sisters continue to minister to the needs of children in residential programs for the emotionally challenged and the autistic, as well as parish ministry. A habit, daily Mass and prayer schedule, as well as convent living, are important factors in the life of a Presentation sister.
Entrance requirements include: at least a high school diploma and a sincere desire to dedicate oneself to God; the possession of average health and intelligence; and the intention of generously giving to God what is already His. Age will be considered on an individual basis. Widows are welcome.
