Notice to the Public

Submitted by: rgsphil

It has come to our attention that well-meaning messages have been circulating in the social media and chat groups about our products being sold in our Quezon City convent and elsewhere. We are very grateful for the public's support to us in this time of crisis. For this reason, we wish to clarify and inform the public of the facts.

We have three convents with economic justice ministries and their main products include ube jam and other pastries:

GOOD SHEPHERD BAGUIO (Mountain Maid Training Center)

All products are not available as the production has ceased since the lock down of Baguio City. Only few student workers are now in the center. Planning for the resumption of operation is on-going. Please wait for further announcement.

GOOD SHEPHERD TAGAYTAY (Bahay Pastulan)

Bahay Pastulan chiefly supports women, especially mothers and trafficking victims. Their work has been affected by the Taal eruption and the ECQ. It is operating at a reduced scale in adherence to government guidelines. We discourage walk-ins and personal inquiries. However, limited offerings are available online through social enterprise platforms such as SPEW PH (www.spew.ph).

GOOD SHEPHERD QUEZON CITY (Aurora Blvd. cor. Katipunan Compound)

Our Euphrasian Community inside the compound produces food products at a very small scale to support its crisis intervention center. Currently, products are no longer available.

While it is a fact that many of our economic justice program participants (beneficiaries) are affected, our shelters all around the country remain open to care for children and women who are victims of gender and sexual exploitation.

One of our schools, St. Bridget School of Quezon City, is now home to frontliners from a public hospital. We are proud of our Bridgetine students, parents, alumni, and friends for supporting this initiative. If you wish to support this work, please send us an email at smeidfi12@gmail.com.

Again, our heartfelt gratitude to all. In prayer and solidarity, let us implore the Good Shepherd for an end to this pandemic and work towards a more just society for all. — with St. Bridget School, Quezon City.
