Presentation Sisters to build new residences in Aberdeen & Sioux Falls

(KSFY) - The Presentation Sisters have announced plans to build two new residences in South Dakota.

The new buildings will be constructed in Aberdeen and Sioux Falls, the organization announced Wednesday.

In Aberdeen, Presentation Place will be constructed adjacent to Avera Mother Joseph Retirement Community in a separate building that is linked to Avera Mother Joseph Manor.

In Sioux Falls, Presentation Center will be constructed south of the Walsh Family Village near the Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center campus.

The organization says construction is planned to begin in the summer of 2019 and will take approximately 10 to 12 months.

In a press release, Presentation Sisters said changing health needs of the Sisters, a smaller carbon footprint, and better stewardship of resources are all reasons for the new residences.

The Presentation Sisters were founded in 1886 with Aberdeen being the central location. They provide ministry, health, and other service to people in communities across the region.
