We, the Brothers of St. John of God, are called to witness to the people of God Christ’s healing love as expressed by our charism of hospitality, through a community of faith and a compassionate service to God’s suffering people. It is very evident that more persons are being assisted by the Order throughout the world today than ever before in its history. We know, however, we cannot handle this alone.

Today the family of St. John of God is a large one, including Brothers, staff, service users and their families, volunteers, benefactors and friends of the Order. What draws this family together and what inspires us to continue the work that John of God began is based on his vision of offering healing and hospitality to those in need.

Through your direct donations and gift of prayer, you actively support and participate in our ministry. You are part of the St. John of God family.

We invite you to walk closely with us and share in our mission. Please come back and visit us often.


Giving Programs

We ask each of you to pray for the needs of our community, the special intentions of our brothers, the needs of those entrusted to our care and for an increase of vocations.


Deferred Giving

Bequest and Wills– Remembering Hospitaller Order of St. John of God in your will offers an opportunity to make a substantial contribution that ensures the services we offer to the poor, the needy and the disabled will be available for many generations without drawing on your resources.

Beneficiary Designation– You may name Hospitaller Order of St. John of God as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, a retirement fund, IRA, a savings account or a Certificate of Deposit.

Trusts & Annuities– Trusts and annuities offer a means of making a significant gift to the brothers while retaining a life income. Along with generous federal tax benefits, there are corresponding restrictions. A personal attorney or tax consultant should be contacted to determine the best plan for you.


Direct Support/Giving

Cash Gifts– These gifts can be used immediately and provide a tax savings to you.

Memorials and Tributes– Donations can be made to The Province of the Good Shepherd in North America to honor or remember a loved one.

Gift of Stock– Gifts of stock or securities which have risen in value since their purchase make attractive gift vehicles.

All contributions are tax deductible as provided by law.

In the past if you directed gifts to the Children’s Center in Malawi or other missions in Africa, this project is under the umbrella of the St. John of God Hospitaller Ministries, West European Province in Ireland, not the Province of the Good Shepherd.  You may choose to continue your support by sending gifts directly to the West European Province  The Province of the Good Shepherd does not accept gifts designated for Malawi or other missions in Africa.

During National Trustees Week, a mention of Brother Charles, not only a trustee but also hardworking volunteer at the Good Shepherd and one of the Brothers who helped set up the charity and are still an integral part of its operation.

Brother Charles is pictured on the right of this photo featuring the other Brothers who also support the Good Shepherd. From left, Brother Stephen, Brother Michael and, seated, Brother William.

And, an introduction: Brother Michael Newman joined the Brothers community in Wolverhampton in August and is now helping out at the Centre. Brother Michael, originally from Middlesbrough, has been involved with various health and social care projects run by the Brothers over the years. He has spent the last six years in a training role in Malawi, Africa. We welcome him to Wolverhampton and thank the Brothers for their ongoing work for the Good Shepherd and care and support for the people we serve.
