Welcome to the website for the

 Ministry of The Good Shepherd

You are invited into a world woven by friendship, generosity and a dynamic outreach for the poor. This tapestry weaves threads From around the world: Boca Raton, Florida; Cork, Ireland; Trujillo, Mache and Lima, Peru. The story begins in 1991 with an Irish Sister of Mercy – Immaculata – who feels called to spend her golden years as a missionary in Alto Trujillo, Peru. She listens carefully to the people and envisions with them projects and programs that would challenge the harsh poverty of their lives.

The story continues in 1994 when dear friends from her years in Boca Raton felt the need to call her in Peru: "Do you need anything?" Gradually a group of donors form to provide Sister with the funds to implement her creative and compassionate outreach.

Today The Ministry of The Good Shepherd, based in Boca Raton, Florida, USA, is a tax-exempt, non-profit organization with an established board and a yearly budget of over $100,000. All contributions go directly to the mission work in Peru. Sister sends regular reports and board members visit her several times a year to view the projects first hand, an inspiring experience!

You are invited to learn more about our history and to view descriptions of all the exciting projects that are the fruits of this collaboration.

The Ministry of the Good Shepherd supports projects in Alto Trujillo and Mache in the region of La Libertad, Peru
