                             Devoted to Preserving Images of the Traditional Habit

Sisters of the Good Shepherd

Founded:    1641 by St. John Eudes

Purposes:    Originally semi-cloistered with vows of poverty, obedience, chastity and zeal for souls.  Run homes for girls (troubled, unwed mothers, girls accused of promiscuity, former prostitutes).
