We are Presentation People who share the charism of Nano Nagle. We reach out in faith, in a spirit of hospitality, compassion and simplicity to all of creation.The cry of Earth and people made poor calls us to continue the mission of Jesus to bring forth a sustainable society founded on respect for Earth,universal human rights, economic justice and a culture of peace.
Our mission is to speak and act in partnership with others for global justice from a contemplative stance in a spirit of oneness with the whole of creation.
We Presentation People embody the compassion of Jesus and Nano.
We practise non-violence of mind and heart
as we listen into the chaos and feel the pain of our time.
We find strength in connectedness
trusting that our feet know the way and our hearts carry the light.
