Companions of Jesus The Good Shepherd lead consecrated life

Companions of Jesus the Good Shepherd take vows and lead a consecrated life in our own homes and work environments. We are self-supporting. Committed to the Good Shepherd mission, we take private vow(s) and renew them each year.

Companions have the option to either take the vow of Zeal alone or to also take any of the other vows that Sisters profess: poverty, chastity and obedience, based on the call each of us feels. We strive, in every situation and relationship, to personally witness to Good Shepherd’s core values of mercy, zeal, reconciliation and the value of each individual person that our charism calls us to.

Companions gather for retreat every two years

The Companions gather for retreat every two years at the Province Center in St. Louis. The retreats feed our spirituality and provide an opportunity for us to gather as Community to catch up with one another on our lives. The gatherings also bring us together to handle the group’s administrative functions and plan for the future.

We covered a lot of turf during this year’s retreat, which ran from August 3-5. We ratified our revised Constitution, created a brochure, updated our membership list, discussed making charitable donations and explored ideas for promoting group cohesion and support. We also began the important process of documenting and archiving our history. We renewed our vows during mass, conducted a memorial service for deceased Companions and attended an artist reception and art opening at Good Shepherd Gallery (see page 8) in Ferguson.
