Tri-fold poster boards are ready to be picked up at the parish office so you can make your display stand out for new volunteers.


COMING SOON . . .

THE ANSWER BOOTH . . .
 

The parish staff recognizes that our parish office hours are not the most convenient for working people. So, we will start to have the answer booth set up after all weekend Masses once a month with a staff person to address your needs for Mass Cards, to book a Mass, to get parish information or to sign up for mailings and donations.

We hope this will be of assistance to all our working families to get better service.

Parmenter Foundation
 

We are very pleased to announce that the Parmenter Foundation’s food pantry will now be located at Good Shepherd Parish at Saint Ann Church! They had lost their location and had to cancel their May food distribution.  But after some discussions with their Executive Director, the food pantry will be collecting and giving out food at Saint Ann’s Church.

Food collected at Saint Zepherin Church will still be given to “A Place to Turn” in Natick and St. Matthew’s parish in Dorchester.

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.
