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."

MINISTRY OF LECTOR
 

“When the Sacred Scriptures are read in the Church, God himself speaks to his people, and Christ, present in his word, proclaims the Gospel." Lectors bring life to the written Word of God. They proclaim the Word of God to the assembly and in the absence of a deacon read the Prayer of the Faithful. Who can be a lector?  Persons who have been confirmed, feel called to this ministry and will prepare to proclaim God’s Word at assigned liturgies.

If you are interested in this ministry and/or need more information, please contact Sister Roberta.

Religious Education
Catechists needed for Grade 3 Classes on
Sunday Mornings

We are still in need of volunteers to serve as catechists and assistant catechists across the grades with

particular need for grade 3. Please consider the ways that you can volunteer to help to make the program happen.  We are a volunteer based ministry that relies on the participation of many people within the community.  We all need to take a turn in stepping in to some kind of role in order to create a vibrant faith community for our children. 

We provide a flexible and easy to follow curriculum and training.  There is the option to partner with another parent as co-teachers and share the role of presenting the curriculum.  K-8 has only 11-13 class meetings over the course of 6 months.  There are many other ways that you can support the program as well. 

The religious education staff is happy to answer questions about any of the roles and help you to discern the best ways that you can share your talents with our children.


 

NEW ADDITIONS TO THE
PARISH PASTORAL PLAN

 

In 2013 the Parish Pastoral Council launched the first Good Shepherd Parish Pastoral Plan to assure that our ministries will not only thrive but grow and expand. This plan set a clear vision for our parish and a framework for future pastoral planning activities. During the past several months the pastoral council sessions focused on reviewing the pastoral plan and after much reflection and discussion produced an updated version of the pastoral plan. A summary version of the updated plan is enclosed in last week’s bulletin and is also on our website. The Parish Pastoral Council needs your help to accomplish our Parish Pastoral Plan. We look forward to engaging you in a creative and effective collaboration with us so that we may continue to “be a living sign of Christ’s love in and for the world.” If you have any questions about the pastoral plan, any member of the Pastoral Council would be happy to help you. Parish Pastoral Council members are: Donna Drvaric, Georgia Gojmera-Leiner, Laura Housman, Peg Ingolia, Dan Keating Debbie Levens, Rose Narciso, Brian Prunier, Kathy Sherry, Bruce Wright, Deacon Geoff and Sister Roberta.

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.
