Hospitality is a special virtue that the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary strive to practice in their daily lives. The spirit of joy and welcoming others among them are two motivating factors that prompted the establishment of the IHM Spirituality Center at Immaculata and the IHM Conference Center in Bryn Mawr.
These two facilities offer to our companions on the journey, lay
and religious, a place to pray, to seek peace and silence, and to
find God in study, meditation, conferences, retreats, centering
prayer, renewal days and weekends, workshops, lectures, and simple
times of silence. We invite you to come apart and to let the Holy
Spirit speak to your heart.
Villa Maria House of Studies, the Motherhouse of the Sisters, Servants
of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, was moved from West Chester to
Immaculata, Pennsylvania in 1966. The motherhouse chapel of the
Sacred Heart is perhaps the most beautiful area of this structure,
if not the most inspiring. The windows featured throughout this
site are located in this chapel.
