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."

AN ANNOUNCEMENT
 

“There is an appointed time for everything… under the heavens…” a time for welcoming and a time for saying goodbye.  It is with sadness that we share with you that Sister Roberta’s ministry with us will be completed at the end of June. We have been blessed to have her as our Pastoral Associate for the past ten and a half years. Her contributions have been many, ranging from working with those being baptized to adult faith formation and the Stephen Ministry. She will be deeply missed. A celebration of her years with us will take place after the 10:30 am Mass Sunday, June 24. Please join us.

As a gift from the parish, we will be collecting photos and well wishes to compile into a goodbye book for Sr Roberta.  Please forward your words and photos to Laura Housman (lthousman@yahoo.com)

Where: Golf on the Village Green
315 Worcester St. (Route 9) Natick, MA

Did you know that you can buy cupcakes with food stamps but not feminine hygiene products? Once again, Good Shepherd Parish will be collecting feminine hygiene products (tampons and sanitary napkins) as well as new and gently used bras and new underwear for homeless girls and women.  Please place items in the blue bins marked Dignity Matters at each church. We will be collecting the next 2 weekends. Our collection last year was Dignity Matters’ largest.  Let’s do that again this year! There is tremendous need.  Dignity Matters regularly donates to 50 homeless shelters and over 100 scattered sites for families as well as domestic violence programs and food pantries throughout Boston, Cambridge, and MetroWest.

 

 

 

Boy Scouts of America
 

 

A fun way to end a long weekend is with a delicious breakfast served by friendly faces! Please join us for the 11th annual Boy Scout Troop 1 pancake breakfast on Monday May 28th. The breakfast is before the town parade at St. Zepherin’s rectory. It’s the troop’s largest community building event and fundraiser of the year. Scouts and leaders will be serving up chocolate chip, blueberry and plain pancakes, sausages, fruit juice, coffee and cocoa. The doors open at 7:30am for the early birds and will end at 10:30 in time for the parade. The cost is a bargain at $5 per person and $20 per family. Tickets can be purchased in advance from any Boy Scout or look for our tables at Donelan’s and Dunkins/China Rose on weekends. Walk-ins are always welcome. Don’t miss out on a yummy breakfast with friends while supporting your local Troop 1!

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

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.
