+ Ihma –ad Jesum Per Mariam - Poem by Jordan Legaspi

IHMA –Ad Jesum Per Mariam

In the harbor near the bay, stood the tower of authority
Mark of Christian Ideals entwined the Philosophy and Discipline of Education
Men and women, whose inspiration is from Mary mother of Jesus, her patron saint
And that of the Missionaries of Immaculate Conception’s spirituality
Combination of Love, Faith, Charity –that in reach Mati, and the whole country
Under the banner of The Church, she is one of the leading agencies
Living example of the Gospel –the venue of quality and excellent education
Accounts of different achievements, contributions in shaping the society
Through her dedication she partakes in the rising and the falling of years
Evident of God’s presence -the freedom from ignorance and poverty

Holiness is her highest aspiration –the mirror of Jesus’ message
Everyone is a gift: pupils, students, parents, teachers, administrators
And the whole community of Mati; and the here and beyond
Respect and accept is her tool in shaping culture, yet to challenge it if there is a need
Together with other creeds, she has continued the legacy of dialogue

Observant of the ever changing time with its manifested signs
Faithfully, she was and is and will always be a mother to different tribes

Magnificent tower –in the service of The Church in civic and in religious affaires
Ad Jesum Per Mariam: Faith and Work for growth and development
Recorded in the memories of the he and she who had witnessed her growing to beauty
Yes, that affirms her meaningful journey across the sea

Albeit the meaningful and reach story, her influence at times forgotten by some
Calling of many faces, thus, in their chosen field, is a struggle between truth and falsehood
Across time, however, her reputation has reach and became a beckoning star to a many
Decorum of good and pleasant characters: faces and names; honors and titles
Emmacians in details: in one self, with the other self, and in nature –
Men and women –the generation across time
Yes, as their commitment to bring her way of life to their respective duty and responsibility

Immaculate Heart of Mary Academy (IHMA) was founded by the Missionaries of Immaculate Heart of Mary Academy (MIC) , a foreign mission from Quebec.

IHMA offered primary, elementary and secondary programs. And the school as an institution has a big impact to the formation and training of the future leaders/ key offices of Mati and even to the whole province. IHMA together with the Local Church has been an active participant in the shaping of the history of Mati and her people in general.
