Staten Island, New York

In September, 1874, 12 Presentation Sisters from Ireland, led by Mother Joseph Hickey, responded to an invitation to teach the children of poor Irish immigrants at Saint Michael’s parish in New York City. Because many of the children’s parents had died, St. Michael’s soon opened an orphanage on Staten Island, also staffed by Presentation Sisters. In 1884, this became the home of the newly established Sisters of the Presentation of Staten Island. In 2014 the congregation in Staten Island signed a covenant with New Windsor community. After a final Chapter in 2018, the congregation is now governed in cooperation with the New Windsor congregation.
