The International Presentation Association is a networking of the various congregations of PBVM women, including the Union of Presentation Sisters, the Conference of Presentation Sisters of North America, and the Australian Society. The Goal of the IPA is to foster unity and to enable collaboration for the sake of mission. Each congregation freely chooses to become part of the Association, which was established in 1988.

IPA Identity Statement

We are Presentation women
who share the charism of our foundress, Nano Nagle.
We reach out in faith, in a spirit of hospitality,
compassion and simplicity to all of creation.
The cry of those made poor and the cry of the Earth
call us to continue the mission of Jesus
to bring forth a sustainable society
founded on respect for earth,
universal human rights, economic justice
and a culture of peace.

(from 2003 Assembly)

Mission of IPA

Flowing from our identity as Presentation women
the mission of IPA is to channel our resources
so that we can speak and act
in partnership with others for global justice.

(from 2003 Assembly)
