The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has chosen me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free the oppressed and announce that the time has come when the Lord will save his people.
Luke 4: 18-19
Who Are Associates?
In response to the directives of Vatican II, Presentation Sisters invited colleagues and friends attracted by the charism of Nano Nagle to more intentionally share in Presentation ministry and spirituality. Women and men who have completed a set of instructions and been formally accepted for a period of time as part of the Presentation family are called "Presentation Associates."
Associates are not vowed religious but are dedicated to embodying the Presentation mission in their families, their workplaces, their church and civic communities.
Associates are in partnership with vowed members of the province sharing the vision and values of the congregation in service with our brothers and sisters especially persons on the margins of society--the poor, the young, the old, the vulnerable, the overlooked.
In the U.S. Province there are approximately 200 Associates in a dozen states.
"Friends of Nano" is a world-wide movement that includes associates and others who share in continuing the work of Nano Nagle.
For information about Associates or Friends of Nano, ask any Presentation Sister with whom you are acquainted or contact one of the following as appropriate:
