Welcome to Good Shepherd Parish!

We are one parish with two worship sites.

 

Good Shepherd Parish Vision Statement

Good Shepherd Parish strives to be a vibrant, welcoming community where every person can experience the Father’s love. Through the Gospel proclamation, prayer, and joyous sacramental celebration, Good Shepherd Parish will inspire parishioners to discern and live out their vocations and to actively evangelize the world. As we bear witness to the Risen Christ, Our Lord and Savior, we aspire to serve our parish community. We will seek to welcome home the new, the lost, and the disheartened by using the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit.

Reflections from the Pastor’s Desk

At the 10:30 Sunday Mass this weekend, we welcome His Eminence Séan Cardinal O’Malley, OFM Cap. to Good Shepherd Parish as we (at that Mass) celebrate Good Shepherd Sunday and ten years of unity at Good Shepherd Parish worshipping at Saint Ann’s and at Saint Zepherin’s churches. It took the great work of Parish Council members, Finance Council members, Staff and active parishioners to make two church communities come gracefully together as one. I particularly like the story of how the parish name came was chosen. Saint Ann Church and Saint Zepherin Church each have a large stained-glass window of Jesus the Good Shepherd. St. Zepherin’s window is located directly behind the altar. St. Ann’s window is located in the chapel area which is only one of stained-glass windows in that church. The parishioners themselves were presented a list of parish names and overwhelming choose the name Good Shepherd Parish.

I want to recognize Fr. James Laughlin, former Pastor and Administrator, for the tremendous amount of work he did in bringing the two churches together. He and Sister Roberta Rzeznik, SNDdeN truly shepherded the two communities into graceful unity. Because of Fr. Jim’s parish duties in Wellesley, he could not be with us today.

So, this Sunday let us celebrate with Cardinal Archbishop Séan the joy of ten years of Good Shepherd Parish in welcoming home the new, the lost and the disheartened to come together around the Lord’s Table.

In the Good Shepherd’s name,

Fr. Dave O’Leary

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.
