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.

The Superior General
Dear people of God, on behalf of the entire family of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Reparatrix – Ggogonya (IHMR) and on my own behalf, I welcome you to our Institute. I thank God who in his loving mercy called us and consecrated us as His own. We are grateful to God who enable us to hold the 11th Ordinary General Chapter of our Institute. I am glad to introduce to you the new leadership team that was elected on 15th October 2019 for a period of six years.
The Eucharist is central in the lives of IHMR members
We participate in Christ’s sacrifice consciously and fruitfully, in union with the Blessed Virgin Mary as Archbishop Streicher urged us saying, “during Mass, they unite themselves with the Virgin Mary who was standing at the foot of the Cross to offer themselves with Jesus who is offering himself on the Altar, to adore God, to thank him, to offer reparation to Him and to pray for graces for (conversion) the whole world.” From the Eucharist we draw energy and strength to serve God’s people in our apostolate with his love and thus restore the broken relationship between the Father and the entire creation.
