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."

Greetings!                                                                  

I am thrilled to be coming to Good Shepherd parish right after Christmas! 17  of my 31 years of ministry have been in higher education. Four years teaching Moral Theology/Catholic Social Teachings at Saint Mary’s Seminary & University in Baltimore, Maryland.  And 13 years teaching at Tufts University; as University Chaplain and Senior Lecturer in Religions & International Relations, Comparative Religions, and Medical/Researcher Ethics.

But I have always been assisting in parishes in the Archdiocese, being a priest in residence, Rector at St. Anselm’s and Temporary Administrator at a number of parishes.

Coming to Good Shepherd Parish as the Parochial Administrator to assist Bishop Reed is a very exciting adventure.   I have heard many great things about Good Shepherd Parish and all the good work Fr. Jim Laughlin had done.   I look forward to working with you all to take Good Shepherd Parish to the next level as a model parish.   Ready to launch, grow and welcome back. To preach, teach and reach.

Pax Christi,

Fr. David O’Leary, S.T.L., D.Phil.

Wednesday Lunch Group
 

The Wednesday Lunch Group will meet on Wednesday, February 1st at 11:30 AM in the St. Zepherin Center.  Father Dave O’Leary, our new Parochial Administrator, will join us.

Please bring a brown bag lunch and a donation to the food pantry.  Call if you need more information: Janet Testa 508-358-2934 or Marjorie McCammon 508-358-7203.


Name Tag Sunday
 

By popular demand, “Name Tag Sunday” is every Sunday! We invite and encourage you to wear your Good Shepherd Parish Name badge and to wear it each week when you attend Mass or any other parish event. This is one small way we can strengthen our community bonds by getting to know one another’s name. There will be Good Shepherd Parish name badges available for anyone who still hasn’t received one. 


2017 Holy Hour for Life
 

A time to reflect - The Archdiocese of Boston’s Holy Hour For Life is held annually in parishes in conjunction with the national observance of a Day of Prayer and Penance marking the January 22 anniversary of the Roe v Wade decisions legalizing abortion on demand in the United States.

Continuing the annual collaborative effort of our parishes, Deacon Geoff and Deacon Guy St. Sauveur of St Julia will hold a Holy Hour for Life on Sunday, January 22 from 3:30 to  4:30 Mass at St Julia. The hour will consist of community prayer, adoration and Benediction. Please join as we pray together for the dignity of human life from conception to natural death, and that those who govern us may be guided by justice, truth, and a love for the gift of life.


2017 Annual Offertory Pledge Program
 

We are called to be good stewards of our many blessings from the Lord.  We are counting on every parish member/family to return a pledge card so that we may plan for our future and continue to serve Jesus and one another.

Thank you to the families that have returned a pledge card.  If you did not receive your  card in the mail, extra cards can be found at the entrance of both churches  and on our website at www.goodshepherdwayland.org.

With gratitude to all who have furthered the mission of our parish.

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.
