The Society of the Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Theni, South India.
We are Presentation Sisters who participate in the mission of Jesus, by working for the transformation of unjust systems, the integrity of creation and the flourishing of humanity and the earth.
We follow the footsteps of Venerable Nano Nagle, who against the Penal laws of Ireland in 18th Centuary, began her schools in 1754 as she believed in the power of education to transform minds and hearts.
As Presentation Sisters inspired by her example, we are dedicated to reaching out to those on the margins by engaging in compassionate service.
In Theni, the Sisters started the Holy Redeemer Hospital in the year 1933 having the care of the poor and the needy of Theni District at heart. A school, catering to the educational needs of boys and girls too was started, which was later upgraded to serve the girl students only.
We the Presentation family imbibed by the Spirit of Nano Nagle commit ourselves to be in communion with God, ourselves, others and cosmos. Following the Mission of Jesus we work towards systemic change in the society.
