Social Work & Education
Sisters trained as Social Workers help those in need by:
Advocating for the poor
Counseling persons with drug and alcohol-related problems
Assisting at St. Joseph Convent Infirmary and Assisted Living Residence
A major goal of the Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary has always been the care of women and children. One of the ways to provide this care is through education. Our Sisters are educators in both Catholic and public schools, serving as principals, teachers, tutors, teacher-aids, faith formators and youth ministers.
Our Sisters also participate in parish Faith Formation programs and an evangelization effort called "Lambs of Jesus", a Scripture-based children's program fostering a personal relationship with Christ.
We are called to teach the truths of the Faith that so often touch the hearts of others, leading them to Jesus, the Good Shepherd.
