Welcome to Presentation

Set as a beacon on a hill to surrounding Maplewood and the east side of St. Paul, the Church of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary has been a center of Catholic faith and life since 1946. Our parish continues to be a vibrant place of worship, education, and outreach to the community. We welcome you to join us as we celebrate God’s many gifts and strive to bring the gospel message of Jesus Christ to the world around us.
