Funeral Liturgy Planning * Tuesday, June 26th * 7:00PM * St. Zepherin Center

      

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."

Thank you to all who helped to make the
GSP Community Picnic a Success
 

We were blessed with perfect weather and a wonderful team of volunteers.  The Knights of Columbus were invaluable in doing all of the shopping and cooking as well as much of the set up and clean up.  Our hospitality committee provided wonderful baked goods.  Many others stepped up to move tables, supervise children’s activities and clean up.  We could not have done it without all of you.  Thank you for providing an joyful afternoon for our community to come together.

WANT AD
 

Looking for members of Tobit’s Tribe.                                             
In the Jewish Scriptures, Tobit was punished for burying the dead.

Good Shepherd Parish has the need for a couple of teams of senior adult severs for weekday and Saturday funerals. Each team would be made up of 3-4 senior adult servers, men and women. Members of Tobit’s Tribe will help with the funerals here at Good Shepherd Parish, both at Saint Ann Church and at Saint Zepherin Church.

Last year there were 50 funerals celebrated here in Good Shepherd Parish. With a couple of teams of Tobit Tribes there would not be a huge time commitment. All funerals are celebrated in the morning.

Duties would include coming early before the funeral Mass to set up for the liturgy, be a part of the entrance procession carrying cross and candles, assisting at the Mass as lectors (if needed), servers and Eucharistic Minister (if needed) and being a part of the recessional.

Training will be offered by Fr. Dave.  Please see, call or e mail Fr. Dave is you believe you are called to be a member of Tobit’s Tribe.  FrDave@goodshepherdwayland.or  508-650-3545

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.

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)

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.
