Good Shepherd Society

Our Pillars

Good Shepherd today

  • Over the next century, the Sisters built up institutional ministries, including educational and health facilities, and some orphanages. In recent decades, the Sisters have expanded their outreach into rural areas, remote from established services and programmes.
  • Following a process of discernment, in 2013 the sisters took the decision to develop two Provinces:
  • South West India and
  • Central East India/Nepal
