"Prayer, community life, and service mark the rhythm of our life in the footsteps of Jesus, the Good Shepherd."

We are a community of women who love what we do and are committed to communicating love and goodness. We are the Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, also known as the Good Shepherd Sisters of Quebec.

With tenderness and compassion, we primarily serve women, youth and the poor.

The concept of Social Justice is central to our Christian faith and has its roots in scripture, particularly in the teachings of Jesus.
