Catholic Appeal 2018

 

Congratulations! Good Shepherd Parish has surpassed its 2018 Catholic Appeal goal of $72,722. I am truly grateful to all the parishioners and families that helped us reach our goal. The Catholic Appeal provides critical funding to hundreds of pastoral, charitable, and educational programs that impact tens of thousands throughout our Archdiocese. Thank you for responding to Cardinal Seán’s call to witness more clearly the depths of God’s love for each one of us through this important effort.

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.
