ECHOES IN IMAGES
November 21, 2021 was the culmination of a year of celebration launched as a Year of Thanksgiving for the tenderness and mercy of God the Father toward Blessed Marie Rivier, Foundress of the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary. The promise made by a small child to the Pietà of Montpezat, was realized in the village of Thueyts. On November 21, 1796 at the height of the terror of the French Revolution, Marie Rivier and her four companions consecrated their lives to God.
In the joy of Mary’s Magnificat, we celebrated these 225 years of foundation.
The journey continues and the adventure is still unfolding!

The Meaning of the Logo
The cross represents the most Holy Trinity and in it our unity with Christ and with each other. It is also the expression of our unity in the midst of our differences. It speaks of love, of conversion and of a great hope.
It is Christ who initiatives the call in our lives, he gathers us, prepares us and sends us. In him, we form a single and unique Presentation family

“We cannot stop proclaiming what we have seen and heard. Far from keeping enchained the Word of mercy … we announce it boldly … “ C 101.
