Following the vision and direction of the Second Vatican Council the IHM Sisters sought to renew and adapt to the needs of contemporary times. In that the Church authority of Los Angeles was not open to this renewal, the disagreement reached an impasse. In order to continue their renewal and mission the IHMs decided to form a new community, without the restrictions required by the Archbishop of Los Angeles and the Vatican, yet dedicated to their mission promulgated in their Decrees of 1968.
