The Congregation of the Little Brothers of the Good Shepherd (LBGS) is a Roman Catholic pontifical institute of religious Brothers, whose members profess the canonical, public vows of chastity, poverty and obedience. We live together in community and join in a variety of social service and health care related ministries to the poor and needy throughout the United States, Canada, England, Ireland and Haiti.

The Congregation was founded on January 19, 1951 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, by Brother Mathias Barrett. The Congregation’s motto is “Charity Unlimited.” Brother Mathias’ original inspiration was to serve Jesus Christ in the person of the poor, destitue and anyone in need of help. This continues to motivate all those who share in the Little Brothers of the Good Shepherd’s life, mission and ministry.



The Little Brothers of the Good Shepherd is a charitable non-profit 501 (c) (3) corporation in the Official Catholic Directory.
We are registered as a non-profit, tax-exempt agency in New Mexico, California, Florida, Illinois and Ontario, Canada.
