GENERAL INFORMATION

As part of its educational program, the Good Shepherd Museum of Quebec gives elementary and secondary students alike an opportunity to learn about the role played by religious congregations in the development of Quebec society. The history of the Good Shepherd Sisters becomes a case in point. All educational activities encourage young visitors to relate current events to events preceding the Quiet Revolution in Quebec. Students also have an opportunity to meet sisters who have worked in the Congregation and have helped to build Quebec as we know it today.


Ministry of Education Program

All activities are in keeping with the Quebec Ministry of Education's curriculum, including the Ethics and Religious Culture program. Although the activities focus on skill acquisition, they encourage young participants to reflect on their personal values.

Schedule

All activities are offered from early September until late June.
