Once a year, as Catholics throughout the Archdiocese we are asked to support the greater church by giving a gift to the Catholic Appeal.  Just as our weekly collection supports parish expenses, initiatives and programs, the Catholic Appeal helps fund services that are essential to the greater Church community. 

This past week, many of you received a letter from Cardinal Seán requesting your support of the 2018 Catholic Appeal.  Supporting the Catholic Appeal is the most effective way to carry out the work of the Church, both within and beyond parish boundaries.  If you have not already done so, please prayerfully consider making an early pledge. You may mail your pledge or visit www.bostoncatholicappeal.org to give online. Thank you!

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.
