The original Project Proposal was to present to the
Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Congregational
General Chapter, which was to convene in January, 1994, a proposed model for membership.
The proposal was to be reflective of IHM Associates and
vowed sisters thoughts on IHM Congregational membership for
now and the future.
Some difficulties arose during the course of research,
both in conversation and reading, which will be explained in
the Revised Proposal which follows, and will be more fully
addressed in the Project Paper.
