Our Place – Mount St. Joseph
Mount St. Joseph, Blarney Street, Cork has been home to the Presentation Brothers for over 125 years. Originally built as a Novitiate ( House of Studies ) for student Brothers, it is now the Generalate ( Headquarters ) of the Congregation. Mount St. Joseph houses a living community of Brothers and Staff. Located here are the Congregation Leadership Team, the Mission Development Office, the Congregation Archives and the new L.E.A.F. project Office. The ‘Mount’ is a place of welcome, hospitality and prayer for the Presentation Family, the wider community of Cork and visitors from abroad.
