The Green Doors of the Good Shepherd Chapel

This is a continuation of my series about the Abbotsford Convent.

The Good Shepherd Chapel is located at St Heliers Street, next to the Abbotsford Convent. Built in 1871 by the Good Shepherd Sisters. In 1863, four sisters set sail to Melbourne from France to provide a safe house for women and girls experiencing hardship.

Today it still belongs to the Good Shepherd Sisters and is still providing a peaceful environment for the community.

Here are some doors inspired by Dan’s Thursday Doors Challenge.

    Beautiful photos, Teresa. I love that this church and that mission are still going strong. That had to be an amazing journey. I love the green doors, and those little windows in the featured photo.

      Thanks Ali. It was closed when we went, so was disappointed that I could not go in the chapel.
