“Love God. Make Disciples. Through Mary”
This is our parish mission statement. So much of what goes on here responds to that mission statement. Our staff efforts are trying to bring you to a deeper relationship with the church. We desire for you to have an ability to “talk about God and Jesus to others”. We are committed to helping you see yourselves acting as intentional missionary disciples for the church because of your prayerful understanding of who Jesus is and why he came to earth: “Go and make disciples of all nations”! We see that happening in the parish.
This is the reason to be a parish church community at Immaculate Heart of Mary. It should be understood by all as a reason one chooses to be a member of IHM. For example; “I belong to IHM, to express my love for God by attending Mass and sometimes partaking in the other spiritual activities to deepen my love for Him”. Or, “I have belonged to IHM for several years now and I have been able, by my example and by my own words, to bring others to IHM church and have them become members!” Or, “I like belonging to a church that cares about service and social justice”. These are but a few.
