Immaculate Heart of Mary School

Ukrainian students seeking refuge are being welcomed to Immaculate Heart of Mary School (IHMS).  The Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate, the School’s Board of Trustees and School leadership are accepting students from Sadochok to Grade 8 to be a part of our Ukrainian Catholic School community. 

“The early years of the School, were during a time when new immigrants were pouring into Canada, looking for a better life; bringing with them, in many instances, nothing but the clothes they wore and the Spirit in their heart”.

(excerpt taken from “The Spirit is Strong” – St. Nicholas, Immaculate Heart of Mary School 100th Anniversary Book 1905-2005).

Today, IHMS continues to provide a caring, compassionate and supportive community to families who have come to Canada seeking refuge from the war in Ukraine. They are being embraced in a way that allows a family to find comfort in an educational environment that is rooted in the Ukrainian Catholic faith and culture.

IHMS is committed to meeting the needs of every arriving student and family to the extent that IHMS’s existing capacities permit. Your gift will help IHMS meet those needs.

To date, more than 60 Ukrainian children have joined the IHMS community.

Donations to IHMS's war relief efforts will be used to offset tuition costs, supplies, uniforms, extra-educational support, or any other identified needs that will aid in the education and stability of these students and their families.


Educate the Young

For more than 117 years, Immaculate Heart of Mary School (IHMS) through the guidance of the Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate has been educating and developing the unique talents of children from nursery school to Grade 8.

From the earliest age, students are taught the importance of balancing and practicing daily the values of: academic excellence, faith, culture and community. It is by living these four core values daily that Immaculate Heart of Mary School students have a rich and rewarding educational experience. Graduates go on to excel in high school and later in the wider community where they become civic, social, business and church leaders.

Lubov SSMI Foundation wants to ensure that our only faith-based private Ukrainian Catholic School in Canada can continue to provide the best education possible for many generations to come.  

We invite you to invest in this important ministry. You can help shape the educational experiences for those at IHMS today and for future generations. Your donation may be designated to one of three areas of need for the School at this time.  

Move the Spirit Capital Fund - Contributions are used for major capital expenditures that will benefit the school community now, and well into the future.  A portion of the funds are invested for the long range vision of a new IHMS campus.  A portion of the funds are allocated for capital expenditures and beautification of the current school.

School Operation Fund - Contributions are earmarked for the day to day programs offered to the students.  IHMS provides an academic program that promotes academic excellence and develops independence.  Along with the curriculum there are many co-curricular and extracurricular programs for students, providing them a well-rounded educational experience.  Some of the co-curricular programs include:  Performing Arts/Drama, Cultural Arts, Outdoor Education, Social Justice Club, School Intramural Sports and the new Debate Program.

Scholarship/Bursary Fund - Contributions provide financial assistance to students to continue their education.  Full and partial bursaries are available to any student, based on financial need, as determined by the Bursary Committee.  Scholarships are awarded to students based on academic achievement and/or participation in school programs and activities.  For more information about Immaculate Heart of Mary School click on the logo or follow the donate now link to make an online donation now.
