presence and compassion of the Redeemer to those who suffer in body, mind and spirit. We

we follow the example of Mother Alphonse Maria
Eppinger who founded the congregation 160 years

neighbor are but one single love.” Through our

Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin
Mary (P.B.V.M.) Dubuque, IA Sisters of the Presentation of Dubuque are women religious inspired
by the faith and life of their foundress, Nano Nagle.

political and economic oppression and with great
personal risk, Nano launched an underground
school system, visited the poor and elderly in their
homes, and spent hours in prayer. Her charism of
hospitality lives today in the sisters, associates and
friends who reflect God’s love for the world, live the
Gospel value of welcoming all, and carry Nano’s
lantern of hope to people in the United States and
Bolivia. Are you interested in making a difference?

Sisters of the Holy Family (S.S.F.) The Sisters of the
Holy Family were founded by Henriette Delille, a free
woman of color, in 1842 in New Orleans, Louisiana
during the time of slavery. Her Sisters have depended
on the grace and goodness of God and lived according
to His will, their motto: “No cross. No crown.” They
were founded to help the sick and elderly, to teach
the unlearned, “from the cradle to the grave,” and to
bring the message of Jesus to the poor and marginalized. For almost 175 years, we have used our gifts
for teaching, nursing, social service, administration,
pastoral, housing and prison ministries in the United
States, Central America and Africa. We thank God for
all that has been and look forward to the beatification of Venerable Henriette Delille. We welcome all
nationalities. Please contact Sister Laura Mercier, SSF
