OUR BRIEF HISTORY
Originally known as the Auxiliary Sisters of Mary Reparatrix (ASMR), the Institute of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Reparatrix-Ggogonya (IHMR), was founded in 1927 by Archbishop Henri Streicher (M. Afr), with the Society of the Sisters of Mary Reparatrix as our formators. He collaborated with Sr. Maria Majella Nambi, who had transferred from the Daughters of Mary Bwanda and came to Entebbe with a burning desire to embrace a contemplative religious life in a Spirit of Reparation/ Restitution.
