In all things and at all times the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary try to live Mary's fiat, "Be it done unto me according to your word," thus sharing in the redemptive mission of Christ. Called together as a family with the Eucharistic Christ as the center and source of life, the IHM's are a contemplative-active community with a Eucharistic and Marian spirituality and charism.

In union with Mary who pondered all things in her heart, the Sisters serve the Church first through contemplation and prayer, especially prayer for the conversion of sinners and the sanctification of priests. In imitation of Mary, the Sisters strive to give Christ to the world through their faithful, joyful witness and through works of Catholic education on all levels and in a variety of programs, including spiritual retreats.

Originally founded in Spain in 1848, the IHM Sisters of Wichita are a new community with a long history. Invited to Wichita in 1976, a new foundation was established in 1979. Interested young women between the ages of 18 and 34 are encouraged to contact the Sisters for more information.
