Sisters take a fourth vow of zeal in addition to our other vows of
chastity, poverty and obedience. Active Good Shepherd Sisters vow
zeal "to labor for the salvation of souls".
Good Shepherd Sisters vow zeal "to pray for the salvation of souls".
That means that together as sisters we commit ourselves to stay committed
to the challenging mission of bringing the healing touch of Jesus
to people God sends into our lives. To keep on reaching out to people
with the compassion of Jesus, to treat people with dignity. We want
to be in relationships of love and healing with people who don't feel
good about themselves, who make unhealthy choices, or who don't feel
their human dignity...who need the Good Shepherd to come and search
for them when they are lost. If you feel passionate about helping
people experience their dignity, if you already are able to commit
to people and projects, and stay committed even when the novelty wears
off, then maybe being a Good Shepherd Sister is for you!
