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.
At the 2018 Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) Assembly, the members of the conference, who represent nearly 80 percent of the approximately 49,000 women religious in the United States, approved a resolution recommitting to the important work of addressing racism as a systemic, structural cause underlying and contributing to multiple injustices. We would like to invite you to join us in LCWR’s Standing Against Racism social media campaign.

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. This was the inspiration of Sister Rosina Conrotto, PBVM, who, along with other Presentation Sisters, joined the serving staff that day. Their smiles and welcoming hearts ensured that Nano's spirit of compassionate service and hospitality permeated the entire event.
A Week at the California-Mexico Border
On the morning of January 2, we, Sisters Lucia Lodolo PBVM (pictured left), Kathleen Kearney RSM, Martha Larsen RSM and Máire Sullivan PBVM, started out on our journey to the Refugee Center in San Diego. This opportunity came about at the end of December and we wanted to be of help in any way we could to offer support to those who were journeying here for safety and for a better life for their families.

25 Years of Learning and Loving
The past mingled with the present as all looked toward the future. In March of 1994 the Learning and Loving Education Center was opened through the vision and efforts of the Sisters of the Presentation, San Francisco. Twenty immigrant women and their little children came to learn and grow. Now in March of 2019, 170 immigrant women and 55 of their preschool children come to learn and grow. There is much to be celebrated.
