of the Immaculate Mother
of the Church
The Institute of the Immaculate Mother of the Church is a female lay institute under diocesan law, founded in 1958 by Father Franciszek Blachnicki.
The essence of life for the members of the IMMC consists of evangelical counsels – chastity, poverty, and obedience. They form the foundation of communal life for the entire Institute, both for members practicing community living and those living individually.
