About Us Sisters of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd

There is always something good in every being: the spark with which to reignite the fire.

St Mary Euphrasia Pelletier

The Sisters of the Good Shepherd, called to a mission of justice and reconciliation, express their charism of merciful love in two different lifestyles: apostolic and contemplative.


The Apostolic Sisters spread the message of justice and reconciliation through a ministry of charity and evangelization aimed especially at women, children, girls marked by vulnerability of various kinds: family conflicts, parental difficulties, domestic violence, migration, trafficking.


The Contemplative Sisters bear witness to the absolute primacy of God and seek to be instruments of reconciliation through their prayer, evangelical asceticism, solitude and silence.

“This seems to be the mysterious work that goes on in the hive, everyone engaged for the general good”

St. Mary Euphrasia
