Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd

We are an International congregation, with an apostolic or contemplative lifestyle. We express our charism together with mission partners in 72 countries.

Our Vision

We envision a new way of living that celebrates the connectedness of all God's creation, an inclusive world where the dignity and diversity of all life is honored and protected.

Our Mission

Energized by our evolving understanding of God's love, we build partnerships that promote the dignity and human rights of all, especially women and children. In solidarity, we work for the transformation of unjust systems, the flourishing of humanity and integrity of all creation.

The Heart of the Mission

It's such a great gift to live! I want to live for Christ and to offer my life for Him.

I am with you always

The Word of God:
“I want you to be happy, always happy in the Lord…” Philippians 4: 4
Reflection
Being happy is good for us. Laughter and joy can lift our spirits and bring us a sense of wellbeing. When joy and happiness are shared they bring people together and help people to feel connected to each other. We can create an atmosphere that is bright and cheerful by being generous in our kindness and care of one another. Today’s Word of God is inviting you to look for opportunities to bring happiness and joy to yourself and to others.
Ritual
Look for opportunities today, for ways in which you can make those around you happy, really happy by your thoughtfulness and care. And notice when you bring real joy to others, it comes back to you abundantly. Take time tonight, when you prepare for sleep, to thank God for the happiness you experienced during the day and for the happiness you brought to others. Rest with a smile upon your heart.
Remember
Happiness comes from giving and receiving.
