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."

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. 
 
To find out more about Stephen Ministry or to receive a Stephen Minister’s care, call

Children’s Liturgy of the Word Leaders
are Needed for the 10:30 am Mass

Children’s Liturgy takes place during the 10:30 Sunday Mass on weeks when Religious Education is held.  The Children’s Liturgy allows the children to continue to participate in Mass in a way that is more easily accessible and engaging to them.   The leader prepares a simple activity and brief explanation of the readings for children in grades k-5. Materials outlining activity ideas and summary children’s homily are provided. Leaders are scheduled on a rotating basis approximately every four weeks based on availability.  Training and support are provided.  Please contact Sue Muldoon in the Religious Education Office for more information


Good Shepherd Parish Pastor Interview by Wayland Patch

Good Shepherd Parish's own Pastor James Laughlin was interviewed by the Wayland Patch regarding the recent historic papal visit to the states. Father Jim explains: “For Catholics, his visit is a source of pride for our Church and a challenge to live more fully the faith which we cherish.” Pope Francis has been very popular because of the way he accepts people at their station in life and welcomes them with open arms, which was witnessed by a number of his interactions during his U.S. visit. Read more of Father Jim's interview with the Wayland Patch here.


Service Trip 2016  
 

Want to have an amazing experience next summer? Good Shepherd is going to Pittsburgh, PA to serve as part of a Catholic Heart Work Camp, a national organization that organizes service programs and helps young people connect to their faith. We’ll spend a week serving those in need while meeting young people from across the country. High school and middle school aged youth (from 7th grade up) are invited to come.
