Spirit of the IHM Congregation

The spirit of the IHM congregation is, in the tradition of St. Alphonsus Liguori, the spirit of Jesus Christ the Redeemer. The essence of Redemptorist spirituality is rooted in the self-emptying of Jesus Christ and it is this spirit which impels the sisters to offer themselves in joyful self-giving to God by their transformation into Christ and their incorporation into his redeeming mission through the Church.

True to the apostolic and missionary spirt of St. Alphonsus, the IHM spirit manifests itself in simplicity of lifestyle, dedication to the abandoned poor, fidelity to mission, and a welcoming hospitality to all God’s people.
