Presentation SistersPrint Page Print this page

A plaque at the front of the church commemorates the work of the Presentation Sisters in Collie 1902 –2000 as does the metal gates at the front of the church which were crafted by Sergio Amadio.

The Presentation Sisters (also known as the Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary) are women who belong to a family of Roman Catholic religious orders inspired by or based on the group founded in Ireland by Nano Nagle in 1775. In the past, the Sisters dedicated their time to creating schools that would help to educate young people, especially young ladies. Most of these schools are still in operation and can be found all over the world.
