A new ministry in Freeport, Illinois will serve as a home of renewal, hope and dignity for women. To make it a reality, we need your help.
The Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Mother of Christ, also known as “The Sisters of IHM” or “The Blue Nuns,” are transforming the huge Saint Francis School building into the Madonna Renewal Center, a safe haven for adult pregnant women and their infants. Here, women who face unplanned motherhood and need support will encounter and embrace a new future.
To accomplish this mission, the Sisters of IHM will need financial, volunteer and prayer support. Please click on the link below to find out how you can help.
