Legion of Mary

Traveling Fatima and Sacred Heart Statues at IHM

We have resumed the visitation of homes in the Parish with the IHM traveling (Pilgrim Virgin) statue of Our Lady of Fatima.  This Fatima statue, a reminder of Our Blessed Mother’s presence among us, visits different homes in the parish on a biweekly basis.  Each household is invited to pray daily for your intentions. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.

Also, the Sacred Heart of Jesus statue is resuming its   travels to homes with the express purpose of praying for an increase in vocations to the priesthood and religious life. We need more religious vocations so much.

The IHM Legion of Mary sponsors the statues and will arrange to bring one to your home.

We respect your personal preferences, if requested, for masking and social distancing.

To schedule a visit contact Wendi.

Scrip

The IHM Scrip program is a wonderful way to offset your tuition payments!!  Scrip is now open to accumulate Scrip Credits for the 22/23 school Year!  Buy gift cards from your favorite stores to earn tuition credits for your favorite purchases. Even if you do not have children that attend or will attend IHM, our Scrip Program can donate your rebate to a deserving IHM family or to our IHM Tuition Assistance Fund!
ShopWithScrip has launched a new app for families to order gift cards. This app is for families to use and place orders directly from your phone. The gift cards can also be paid for electronically and shipped to your home for a fee.  Even with the app, you can still place physical gift card orders, but this app will allow you to use and order eGift cards as well.
How it works:  Your family buys gift cards at face value.  Your family earns a percentage on each gift card you buy.  Your family uses gift cards at full value for your everyday purchases!
How to get started:  Orders can be placed on the Raise Right app, or via email at  scscrip@iheartmary.org.   The deadline for orders is every Sunday at 8 pm.  Pick up your gift cards on Thursday evenings between 7:00 and 8:00 pm in Father Sullivan Hall.  All orders over $1500 will need to be prepaid in advance.
Please reach out to  scscrip@iheartmary.org with any questions about our Scrip program.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul

Who We Are

The IHM Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a volunteer organization that provides financial assistance, counsel, and support to individuals and families experiencing unexpected crises, primarily in Andorra, Roxborough, Manayunk, and other nearby neighborhoods.

How We Are Funded

Funds used by the Society come primarily from your donations to the IHM Poor Box and to our Annual Appeal via a church envelope.  Funds also come from your donations to GreenDrop.  Because we are volunteers, all funds go directly toward assisting those in need.

How We Help

We provide compassionate services to families and individuals both Catholic and non-Catholic, struggling with financial difficulties or in need of guidance and spiritual help. We have paid bills for rent, utilities, medical expenses, car repairs, and more.  We have referred many to local counseling, food banks, and social services.

Learn About Us

Learn more about this world-wide organization at www.svdp-phila.org.  Then consider joining us in this worthwhile mission. Our meeting dates are listed in the IHM bulletin.  You will find you are blessed with hidden talents, and you will gain more than you give.

Is Someone You Know in Need?

If you know of someone in need, encourage them to call 215-483-1000 (the IHM Rectory) and ask for the SVDP HelpLine where they can leave a message with their call-back information.  Someone from our Society will contact them. Everything will be handled confidentially.

Our currently scheduled upcoming meetings are:

June 27, July 18 and August 18
