Welcome to the Good Shepherd Parish!

We are One Parish Worshipping at Two Sites

 

"We, the Roman Catholic community of Good Shepherd Parish, strive to be a living sign of Christ's love in and for the world. In response to our Baptismal call, nourished by the Eucharist and guided by the values of the Second Vatican Council, we seek to continue the mission of Jesus Christ by welcoming, supporting and guiding all through prayer, sacramental celebration, service and education."

CELEBRATE TENEBRAE

Sunday, April 9 – 7:30 pm
Saint Zepherin Church
 

We invite you to experience Scripture readings and psalms relating to Jesus as the Suffering Servant by joining us for Tenebrae. The Office of Tenebrae (darkness or shadow) is a Holy Week devotion dating back to the 7th or 8th century.  In this service, we will remember the betrayal, abandonment and agony of Jesus’ journey to the cross. This service is also marked by the gradual extinguishing of candles and other lights until a single candle, considered a symbol of Jesus, remains.

We need Lectors for this service. Please contact Sister Roberta if you would like to serve as a lector.

Stephen Ministry
 
When We Need God’s Love Most
 
When do we need God’s love most? Of course we need that love every second of our
 
lives. But at times God’s love is especially precious to us, times when we lose a loved
 
one or when life becomes so confusing that we do not know where to turn. At times like
 
these, it is very important to have someone who cares. Our parish has trained 10 Stephen
 
Ministers, lay people who offer a ministry of Christian caring within our parish and
 
beyond.

EXTEND THE INVITATION
 

“Come and see” was the invitation Jesus offered to a few men of Galilee who were interested in knowing more about him – who he was, where he lived, what his teachings were about? This same invitation we extend to adults who have not been baptized or who have been baptized in another faith tradition but are interested in the Catholic faith or adults who have not received First Holy Communion or Confirmation. Please share this invitation with family members, neighbors or friends. Questions? Contact Sister Roberta at rrzeznik@goodshepherdwayland.org or 508.650.3545.
