The Emblem of the Sisters of Mary of the Presentation
In 1982 the General Chapter of the Sisters of Mary of the Presentation agreed to this oval symbol as a common community symbol to indicate membership in the Congregation.
The symbolism is explained by the Sisters as follows:
The Cross represents Jesus Christ our Savior.
The M represents Mary whose daughters we are.
The Oval signifies the Church and our Congregation.
The Cross is rooted in the earth where our lives and ministry take place.
