Community Development-Renewal

Presentation Centre for Policy and Systemic Change

The Centre was established in 1999 by the Presentation Sisters, in recognition of the need for strategic thinking in relation to the future development of their work. The Centre's work covers four broad areas: learning innovation; social inclusion; influencing public policy, and human rights/ecology.

Our Vision
The Presentation Centre is inspired by the Gospels, Catholic Social Teaching, the example of Nano Nagle, founder of the Presentation Sisters, and an understanding of faith that seeks to do justice. The Centre is committed to:
