Social Justice Actions
Following the exhortation of our foundress, Nano Nagle, to love one another and to spend ourselves for the poor, Presentation Sisters are committed to and actively engaged in the following Social Justice Actions: Ending Human Trafficking, Combating Climate Change, and Advocating for Immigrant & Ethnic Communities.

San Francisco Presentation sisters and friends concluded the yearlong celebration of the 300th anniversary of Nano Nagle's birth by using community funding to co-sponsor a Christmas Eve dinner served to close to 3,000 guests at St. Anthony's Dining Room in downtown San Francisco.

Their smiles and welcoming hearts ensured that Nano's spirit of compassionate service and hospitality permeated the entire event.
