1641, by St John Eudes, as Order of Our Lady of Charity of the Refuge. In 1835, St Mary Euphrasia Pelletier asked for and received approval of the Generalate in Angers (France). This branch then became known under the listed title or as Sisters of the Good Shepherd. Also included in the Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd are: (1) a contemplative branch set up, 1831, by St Mary Euphrasia Pelletier, having the same charism; constitutions were approved, 10 Jan 1834, by Bishop Montault. This branch is now known as Contemplative Sisters of the Good Shepherd, the sisters expressing the charism in lives of prayer and gospel asceticism. (2) Auxiliary Sisters of the Good Shepherd, who express their charism or gift by collaboration in the active ministry of the Sisters. The Congregation is also referred to as Notre-Dame de Charité du Bon Pasteur d'Angers and as Religious of the Good Shepherd (RGS). Both congregations merged into main order, 27 June 2014.
