Saving the City
By Margaret McClure

The History of the Order of the Good Shepherd and the Community of the Holy Name in Auckland, 1894-2000

In 1894 a small group of gentlewomen took the radical step of renting a cottage in Grey Street, Auckland, and opening their doors to provide a haven for all comers. Saving the City tells how these visionary women established an inner city Mission and went on to found the Order of the Good Shepherd, the first Anglican Order of religious Sisters in New Zealand. In their work with wayward girls, working mothers, and impoverished families they welded social action to the spiritual life of High Anglicanism. This history describes the Order's battle for recognition, the activism of Mother Hannah, the Sisters' changing vision, their absorption into the Community of the Holy Name in Melbourne and brief return to Auckland, and the challenges of the future. It is a human story of the highlights and struggles of community life.
