Celebrating 175 Years with the IHM Sisters, Gesu School Co-Directors

The Sisters Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary celebrated 175 years of service and leadership through fidelity, creative hope, and love. Their charism and faith in action have impacted thousands of children’s lives across the globe and here in Philadelphia in our Gesu School community. The IHM conviction that every child can learn guides Gesu in our mission and our efforts to provide the highest quality education for each child, including remedial and advanced classes and a soft skills curriculum. 

Congratulations to the Sisters, and wishing them blessings on their good works!
