Parish Update

Thank you everyone for your great spirit of welcome and hospitality that you extended to Father Bob Connors during his stay with us these past seven weeks. Father Bob enjoyed his time with us.

Now, we will welcome Father Jerry Hogan who will join us the first week of September to serve as a temporary parochial vicar until December. Father Jerry’s primary ministry is as the chaplain for traveling circuses across America.

Our new pastor, Bishop Reed, will take up residence on September 20 and will be with us at the Masses on the weekend of September 25.

We eagerly look forward to welcoming Bishop Reed and Father Jerry to our Good Shepherd parish community!

 


Until bishop Reed’s arrival, we will continue the summer Mass Schedule through September 18. The Sunday 5 pm Mass will resume on Sunday, September 25. Thank you for your understanding.


Volunteer Needed

Each Sunday a Eucharistic Minister brings Holy Communion to the residents of Sunrise. This special ministry brings great comfort to the residents. We thank Judy Rich for her many years of service to the Sunrise community. We are now in need of someone to replace Judy. It is a commitment of one Sunday a month and training will be provided. If you are interested in this ministry, please contact 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.
