Sisters of the Presentation of Mary

About Us

The Congregation of the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary is an international apostolic religious community founded in 1796 by Blessed Marie Rivier. We are serving in twenty countries of the world and are committed to spreading the knowledge and love of Jesus Christ everywhere.

Our zeal is rooted in a deep interior life of prayer nourished by scripture and the Eucharist. Our prayer life helps us to seek and find God in all things, allowing us to live in every situation our motto: All for God, All through Holy love! By means of a rich community life, we help one another grow in holiness. Like most religious communities, we take the three traditional vows of poverty, chastity and obedience.


“Following the example of the Blessed Virgin Mary, presenting herself in the temple, we are called to live in a spirit of adoration and self-offering and to participate in the teaching mission of the Church by the Christian Education of youth. The compassion of Jesus impels us to be deeply attentive to the needs and distresses of the people of our time.” ( Rule of Life)
