Good Shepherd Convent, Goa

At the Invitation of Most Rev. Filipe Neri Ferrao, Archbishop of Goa and Daman, the Sisters of the Good Shepherd began their mission in Rachol in the year 2006. We were asked to work in colloboration with the CARITAS-GOA for the ‘Responsible Tourism’, a project of the Archdiocease. Srs. Colette Monteiro and Zita Oliveira were assigned to this new mission . They lived in a rented house for about seven months.

At the request of Goa diocese Mr. AB Ferandes offered his residence in Colva for the sisters on 8th March 2007. The centre for ‘Responsible Tourism’ and its office too was shifted to AB Ferandes’ campus. Srs. Zita, Martha and Bibiana collaborated with CARITAS-GOA for two years (2007-2009).

The new Province Leader Sr. Maria Rose met the Archbishop Filipe Neri Ferrao and expressed our inability to continue to collaborate with Caritas Goa. The Archbishop understood the problems and suggested another parish in a rural set up. On 27th June 2009 we moved to Tollecanto - Velim belonging to St. Rock’s Parish. Srs. Bibiana Lobo and Vinaya D’Souza were assigned to this mission.
