IHM Apostolates…

Inspired therefore by Christ’s love for the poor and those in any kind of need, our Sisters strive to approach the task of serving our people by working unremittingly and by living  life of self-sacrifice.  In our apostolate, we dedicate ourselves to the service of COMPASSION - always seeking to do so in the Spirit of Mary’s humble heart

We seek to cultivate in our lives a sympathetic personal love and concern for the people with whom we work, people who have a special claim to our love and service and who should be treated with kindness, understanding and sympathy characteristic of the Immaculate Heart of Mary who opens her heart to all.

 Our Founder’s apostolic aims for us is the special care of the sick including maternity cases in hospitals, care of children in orphanages, work in leprosy settlements, the training of women for marriage and for good Christian family life, and the other sacraments, the education of children in schools.  Those works were taken up on small scales at those early days.

 Today,   “the joy and hope, the grief and anguish of the men and women of our time, especially of those who are poor or afflicted in any way, are the joy and hope, the grief and anguish of the (Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary) followers of Christ as well.” (G. S. No.1).

 We dedicate ourselves to the training of women and girls in many dimensions, especially for marriage and the sacraments; special care of widows (helping them to be self-reliant and good Christians); young single mothers and orphans, the aged, derelicts (especially the aged and disabled and HIV/Aids children); special care of the sick in hospitals, dispensaries, maternities, education of children and the youths at  nursery, primary, secondary and tertiary levels, and any other work of charity in keeping with the spirit of our foundation like pastoral works, working as co-formators in seminaries,  caring for immigrants/refugees, making ecclesiastical vestments and cloths, baking of altar bread, among others (following the signs of the time). 

 In Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Tchad, Ghana, Kenya, Italy, Germany, England, Ireland, America and Canada, we carry out this mandate of our Lord, given through the inspiration of our Father Founder - “You are also to be missionaries.”
