PAGE 8 THE GUARDIAN, JULY 5, 1974 Under Changed Apostolate Spa's Good Shepherd Sisters Teach Young Children (This is the sixth in a series of articles on communities of women Religious serving the Lord in the Diocese of Little Rock.) Hot Springs - One convent -- it's autonomous -- and one apostolate, the care and teaching of young children, and that sums up the mission of the Order of Our Lady of Charity of Refuge. For 66 years - Bishop John B. Morris invited the Good Shepherd Sisters from Ottawa, Canada, to make an establish- ment in Arkansas - the Sisters have operated Good Shepherd Home, a day-care center and elementary school, in Hot Springs. And it is a good one. All four units of the day-care center, beginning when the children are just a few weeks old through age four and pre-kindergarten, have full enrollments, Sister Mary Theresa, O.L.C.R., superiqr, said. She said the elementary school enrollment at St. Michael's School on Malvern Avenue now numbers about 90 students, including young boys through the fourth grade on a day-student basis only. All classes in the four-room school, dedicated in 1972, are taught by Sisters of Charity, but lay people do help in the day-care center, Sister Theresa said.

Laura, one of Little Rock's six new priests, is the first FLAVORS TASTEE FREEZ former GI of World War II in the United States to become a school for girls but does take day students. Over the years the Good Shepherd Sisters have shifted their apostolate from one of caring for unwed mothers and as a home for wayward girls to a boarding school for neglected girls from broken homes and for girls whose discipline created problems at home. Being autonomous, the Good Shepherd Sisters do not have a motherhouse in Arkansas, only a convent. However, make no mistake, the order, which came to the United States in 1885 in Buffalo, N.Y., does have motherhouses throughout the country -- one in Wisconsin, two in Pennsylvania, two in New York, three in Texas, one in West Virginia, one in Ohio, one in Alberta, Canada, and several in Mexico. Sister Theresa said the convent requires a high school education for entrance. All enter the monastery at Hot Springs and the novitiate is about six years, after which the woman makes her final vows. Applications are accepted for unmarried women from age 18 up. The Order of Our Lady of Charity of Refuge was founded by St. John Eudes in Caen, France, on Nov. 25,1641.
