The Lantern (La Linterna)


Learning and Loving Education Center, Morgan Hill

Established in 1994, the Learning and Loving Education Center was founded as a response to the need in the Morgan Hill community to empower immigrant women to learn English and encourage women to use their gifts and talents in building relationships among themselves, their families, and the community. (Morgan Hill is a city south of San Jose that is still agricultural but which is also now experiencing a housing boom and becoming a bedroom community for the Silicon Valley)

The Center endeavors to work with women for change through education, and to support them in the process. Daytime classes strive to increase literacy, teach computer skills, improve and enrich the lives of the students empower women to achieve higher education and better jobs, improve health care, and improve self-esteem for a brighter future for themselves, their families, and their communities.

Presentation High School, San Jose

The roots of Presentation High School are deeply planted in the heritage and ministry of the Sisters of the Presentation. Strengthened and challenged by that heritage and dedicated to the ministry of secondary education, the Sisters of the Presentation responded to the needs of the rapidly growing and developing Santa Clara Valley. In 1962, Presentation High School, a Catholic four year high school for young women, was opened. Built in the Willow Glen neighborhood of San Jose, the first seventy students graduated in 1966. Since then, over 4,000 young women have benefited from the excellent education provided at Presentation High School and they have become productive, vital, and ethical members of their communities, work places, and families.

Presentation Diving Into the Deep End


Presentation Retreat and Conference Center, Los Gatos


Presentation Center is a retreat and conference facility nestled in the Santa Cruz Mountains just a half-hour drive from downtown San Jose and the Silicon Valley. The Center directly promotes all forms of life within the environment but in a special way addresses human needs by helping people discover God in themselves, the natural beauty of their surroundings, and in the goodness of those around them. Whether guests come to participate in a formal retreat experience or to spend time alone in the quiet beauty of the mountain atmosphere, they experience a respite from the stresses of society.
