|We have been informed that 'The Good Shepherd Sisters and Our Lady of Charity merged and are now one congregation, Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd - and plans are currently being made regarding their two archives. Discussions regarding location, catalogues and policies are ongoing at the moment and neither archive is complete and continue to be in separate locations. A new catalogue is currently being developed'. The archivist of the community has asked us not to publish online the original list of Good Shepherd archives compiled by the Women's History Project.
