Toronto, Ontario Canada

Tom LissMinistries in Toronto include Good Shepherd Centre, a shelter providing services to homeless and disadvantaged; Barrett House, a supportive housing residence for people living with HIV and AIDS; and St. Joseph’s Residence, a supportive housing residence for seniors with a history of homelessness.

“The Good Shepherd,” as it is affectionately called, is well known on the streets of Toronto. It’s a place to get a hot meal, clean clothes, a safe, clean bed for the night. It’s a place to go when you need someone to listen, someone to help.

What makes Good Shepherd Ministries special? The answer is different for each person who walks through the door. For some, Good Shepherd Ministries means Good Shepherd Centre, the place where you go when there’s no money left for food. For others, Good Shepherd Ministries means transformation, a chance to start again through the Resettlement or DARE Programs. For those who live at Barrett House and St. Joseph’s Residence, Good Shepherd Ministries means home and 24-hour support. For volunteers, Good Shepherd Ministries means a place to make a difference. It’s a place to remember that we belong to each other and that we find true happiness in helping each other.
For all of us, Good Shepherd Ministries is a place that promotes human dignity; a place where people come first; a place where the ‘last’ – the homeless, the marginalized – come first of all.

It is hard to believe it has been six years since we gathered in Albuquerque, NM and under the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit, surrendered to the Lord, the life and times of our beloved Little Brothers of the Good Shepherd Community.  

May such a surrender be a blessing on us and those who are associated with us in the Hospitaller Province of the Good Shepherd.

Fraternally in St. John of God and Mathias Barrett,
