"At our Congregational Chapter, we shared dreams, diverse experiences, prayer, reflection and dialogue. These impelled us to recognize our interconnectedness with the whole of creation, and to respond with ever greater urgency to the cry of people and the planet, seeing to realize the rights of all and to achieve gender equality. We committed ourselves to clear strategic plans, best ministry practices, monitoring, evaluation and accountability - Adapted from 30th Congregational Chapter Direction Statement June 2015.
"We are resolved to free the human race from the tyranny of poverty and want and to heal and secure our planet. We are determined to take the bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world unto a sustainable and resilient path. As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind." Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Affiliated with the United Nations
On 26 April 2016 the Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd celebrated 20 years of Special Consultative Status with ECOSOC of the United Nations (1996-2016).
The purpose of this affiliation is to further our mission of reconciliation, particularly in its orientation toward girls and women. Through this means of collaboration we work to bring about change in whatever conditions condemn others to a marginalized life. Through our affiliation with the goals of the UN, we seek to extend mercy to the poor and to the oppressed, awakening our world to the dignity and value of each person.
