The San Francisco Presentation community consists of 62 vowed members and 30 associates. Our primary mission is to the poor, which we manifest through a variety of ministries as fulfilled by our foundress Nano Nagle. Presentation women are committed to serving the poor in ministries of education, community outreach, pastoral care in hospitals and care centers, parish ministry, literacy programs, caregiving, foreign missions, immigration work, spiritual direction, prayer, social services, volunteer services and leadership. Presentation Sisters currently serve in the Archdioceses of San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C., and the Dioceses of  Oakland, San Jose, Monterey, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Guatemala. We live in small group residences, apartments, parish convents, and our Motherhouse, which provides special care for our elderly and infirm sisters.

You can learn more about the individual Sisters by reading Presentation Women a Legacy of Vision, Faith, and Service. This biographical book chronicles the lives of every Presentation Sister from 1854 - 2004. Don't wait, enjoy discovering the personalities and personal stories of the amazing women who became Sisters of the Presentation, San Francisco today!
