Message from the Youth Minister:

Thank you all for helping to welcome me to Good Shepherd Parish! I was very glad to meet so many kind, generous and faith-filled parishioners last weekend after all of our masses. I am especially grateful to the Knights of Columbus, the Hospitality Committee, and all other staff and volunteers who helped with the welcoming barbecue. It was a great way to start the year, and the barbecue itself was an absolute success.

Much hard work and expertise went into this event, and I am very grateful to all who made it possible. I look forward to getting to know this community more over the coming weeks and months and especially look forward to working with our parish’s passionate and dedicated youth. It’s going to be a great year!

Gratefully,

Tom Jackson


 

The First Service Coordination Committee
meeting will be on:

September 21, Sunday  -  9:45 a.m.

"Flower room" across from the Library
at St. Ann's Church

 

A Service gathering was held in June for representatives from the active ministries in our parish.  Representatives from the active ministries in our parish were invited to this gathering.  After this gathering, many of the attendees prayerfully discerned a deeper interest in becoming part of a creative group that will move the Pastoral Plan’s vision forward, with a goal of growing Christian service and ministries in our parish.

 

This committee is in its formation stage.  If you or anyone you know may be interested in becoming a part of this committee or if you have questions, please contact:  Rose Narciso, PPC liaison to the Service Committee rose.narciso@gmail.com.

Is your ministry represented?  We want to hear from you?  Be a part of this committee!

All are welcome.

 


Thank You

 

Many thanks to the Hospitality Committee (renamed from Parish Life) for providing light refreshments after the 8:30 AM Mass throughout July and August. The homemade breads were tasty and it was nice to connect with one another.

Looking forward there are several exciting coming events that are on the parish calendar:

Sunday, October 5 – Welcome to New Families after the 5 PM Mass

Saturday, October 18 – Senior Dinner after the 4 PM Mass

Saturday, October 25 – Fund Raiser Dinner for Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos

The committee needs more help to host these events. If you are able to help with preparing the food, baking, serving, helping in the kitchen for one or more of these events, please be in contact with MaryAnn (508.358.6334) or Marilynn (508.788.6346). If you would like to be part of the planning, the next meeting is on Wednesday, September 3, 7 PM at Panera’s in Natick (Bldg 19 Plaza).

Gathering socially is an important part of being a parish community. We hope you will be able to join us and, maybe even lend a hand in their preparation.


Boston Sock Exchange

9/6/14

 

It was a hot and humid day as we traveled to the Boston Common on September 6th.  We brought plenty of water to give to our brothers and sisters to keep them hydrated.  As we turned onto Tremont Street, we could see the line already forming down the sidewalk. One of our brothers in line, who we haven’t seen for several months, greeted us as we arrived at the Common.  He told us that he has a place to live and a stable job.  He does not get to the Common much anymore but he made a special trip on Saturday morning to let us know that he was doing well.  It was so good to see him and to hear his great news!
