Who are Presentation People?
Presentation People are sisters, associates, employees, friends or partners who share in the Presentation mission and charism.

 We invite you to consider attending a historic gathering of Presentation People across North America! This is your opportunity to join 100-150 other Presentation People in beginning to write the next chapter in our Presentation story. Our goal is to have a mix of sisters, associates, employees and other partners.

At the gathering, individuals connected to Presentation will come together to see themselves in the larger Presentation story. Further, attendees will be an integral part of dreaming about the unfolding story of Presentation in our world today and into the future. 

We encourage you to consider attending the gathering because you have exhibited a desire to be a part of the Presentation mission and charism now and into the future. You have shown the desire and capacity to engage creatively with others to dream of new ways to promote Nano’s charism. In addition, you will be asked to bring home the work and spirit of the gathering to share with your communities and ministries.

Dates: September 23 – 25, 2021
Travel dates are September 22 and 26. Our hope is for participants to attend all of the conference, therefore, we request all to arrive on or before September 22 and depart on September 26.
