Letter on the Release of the Presentation High School Report

Sisters of the Presentation

July 9, 2020

By Sister Michele Anne Murphy, PBVM

Dear Members of the Presentation High School Community,

We are writing to you today to express our profound sadness regarding the sexual misconduct and subsequent regrettable ineffective action, or in some cases, lack of action at our dearly loved Presentation High School. They run contrary to everything the Sisters of the Presentation believe in – and stand for, most critically, promoting a society which respects the dignity of all persons.

In addition, they do not reflect the core beliefs on which our school was founded in 1962.

Particularly distressing to the Presentation Sisters is the pain these actions have caused the survivors. We are grateful for their courage in coming forward, recognizing how difficult it must have been.
