Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of
Mary (I.H.M.)—Monroe, MI We are a ministerial
community of vowed women and lay associates. We
believe the Spirit is inviting us to enter more deeply
into the liberating mission of Jesus Christ as we come
to understand it anew through the mystery of the
Sacred Universe. We are mutually responsible for the
life, mission, and common good of the community.
Our spirituality and our shared humanity compel us
to respond collaboratively with others to the challenges of our beautiful yet fractured world especially
through our commitment to social, economic, and
ecological justice. Nourished and strengthened by
personal and communal prayer, awareness of global
inequalities, compassion for all, and openness to the
Spirit, we strive to live the gospel through a variety
of ministries including spiritual direction, education,
advocacy for peace, justice, and sustainability, pastoral ministry, counseling, and healthcare. Contact:
