In all things and at all times, the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary try to live Mary’s fiat, 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 Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary are a contemplative-active community with a Eucharistic and Marian spirituality and charism.
In union with Mary, the sisters serve the Church first and foremost through contemplation and prayer. In imitation of Mary, the sisters strive to give Christ to the world through their faithful, joyful witness and by works of Catholic education on all levels and in a variety of forms, 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 30 are encouraged to contact the sisters for more information.
