"We have an old building that we are refurbishing as a small  Heritage Centre,  as a tribute to the life and ministry of the Presentation Sisters in England. It is a place where we hope people will be able to come and gather, meet the Sisters and each other, and remember stories. We will also keep our archives there so that people can come and maybe do research and read up on things......

We need help with the funding any donations will be gratefully received. Please send them to -

Sister Frederica
Presentation Convent
Chesterfield Road
Matlock
Derbyshire DE4 3FT

Cheques should be made out to PRESENTATION HERITAGE CENTRE.

Please include your name as you were known in school; your addresss; the school you were at, and the dates, and mention any sisters you remember.

You will be remembered in the prayers of the Sisters and will be invited to visit the centre as soon as it is ready.....

Wishing you every blessing."

from Sr.Susan, Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, April 2008
