Foundress Day Celebration @ Good Shepherd Centre

Foundress Day Celebration

Good Shepherd Centre on 23 April 2023.

On the 23rd April 2023, Good Shepherd Centre residential programme participants celebrated our Foundress, Saint Mary Euphrasia’s Day. She is a visionary and founder of the Good Shepherd Sisters. The celebration was a cheerful and uplifting event that brought joy to the hearts of all involved.

Laughing & Breathing Therapy!

The celebration began with a laughing and breathing program led by Miss Angie, a well-known therapist who specializes in breathing techniques and laughter therapy. The program was designed to help the adult prpgramme participants who are mothers, to relax and release any tension or stress they might have been feeling. The program was a hit with them, who laughed and breathed their way to a relaxed and positive state of mind.


Fun & Games Time!

On the other hand, the young residential programme participants had a fantastic time engaging in a separate activity with the staff to celebrate Saint Mary Euphrasia. The day was filled with fun and laughter as the young ones participated in various games. The staff members were dedicated to making the day special for them, and they appreciated their efforts. According to them, the activities helped them to forget their worries and enjoy the moment. Overall, it was a wonderful day for everyone and they were left with smiles on their faces feeling happy and cared for.


What a Treat! 

Following the adults’ laughing and breathing program and the children’s activities, these residents: mothers and children were treated to a nice high tea buffet. It was a delicious spread of cakes, sandwiches and other tasty treats. The buffet was a great way for both the adult & children to socialize and enjoy each other’s company while indulging in some sweet and savoury treats.


Overall, I would say, the celebration of Foundress Day was a huge success. The mothers and their children were able to come together and celebrate the day while also enjoying some laughter therapy and delicious food. It was a heart-warming event that brought smiles to the faces of all involved.
