The Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary are a Roman Catholic religious congregation of women committed to the service of God and the spread of the Gospel. We carry out our mission of love and service through our many ministries with God’s people, especially poor women and children.
In 1997, the Sisters of the Presentation of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, and the Sisters of the Presentation of Newburgh, New York, united to form one new congregation now based in New Windsor, New York.
The motto inscribed on the Nagle family’s coat of arms was Non Vox Sed Votum, Not Words But Deeds. Nano Nagle and the Presentation Sisters who followed in her footsteps have always taken these words to heart. The motto sums up more than two hundred years of active service as the Sisters spread from Cork across Ireland and eventually to other parts of the world, including North America. Wherever our Sisters went, they opened schools, hospitals, orphanages, and places of refuge for the poor and powerless. They continue this outreach today.
