The Pre-Postulancy is the first stage of Formation in our Institute of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Reparatrix- Ggogonya. This Formation House is the community of young women who are still under the process of discerning their vocation. Currently the community has twelve aspirants. It is located at Ggogonya Mother House which is 13 miles along Kampala-Entebbe highway.


  • The main objective for this stage is to deepen the faith and morals of candidates who feel called to religious life of Our Institute of Immaculate Heart of Mary Reparatrix – Ggogonya

  • It is to help these young women discern well their calling and vocation whether it is for the charism of IHMR or any other Institute of consecrated life. They can discern any other call of life.

  • This stage equips them with manual work skills, pastoral work, re-creation and co-curricular activities to keep them physically and spiritually healthy.

Current Situation:

The community is headed by Sr. M. Susan Najjemba, the pre-Postulant Mistress. The whole community has a staff of six members charged with the task of forming the dozen of aspirants at hand. Among the twelve candidates; ten hail from the central region of Uganda, one from the western region and one form the Eastern region of Uganda. Some of our candidates have professions in different areas such as teaching, Nursing, hotel management and a few are high school leavers.

 Future plans:

  • We hope to have a new place for the pre-postulancy-away from the Mother-House

  • We hope to secure more land to enhance self-sustenance and reliance

  • We are looking forward to having more income-generating projects like Poultry.
