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.

Third Sunday in Ordinary Time – January 23, 2022

Christian Unity Week is celebrated each year in the middle of January to stress how all Christian churches can pray to work together. This weekend Good Shepherd Parish welcomes Reverend Rebecca Cho from Community Methodist Church in Wayland to offer a reflection on the Scripture readings at our 4PM Mass. And on Sunday morning I will offer a reflection on the readings at Community Methodist Church. It is a small gesture, but important one helping to foster Christian Unity.

This Sunday’s Second reading from St. Paul’s Letter to the early Church at Corinth is very powerful. This reading shows us that we all have something to contribute and give back to our parish family of Good Shepherd Parish. We are all called to service and ministry using our God given gifts and talents to build up the community. Please see in this reading your own call to help our Parish. For instance, there are tasks as simple as being a greeter welcoming folks into our church and holding open the door. There are tasks behind the scenes such as doing the linens for Mass, watering the flowers, preparing mailings, writing cards and simple office help. There are simple tasks picking up after Mass and straightening the hymnals for the next Mass. And then there are public roles such as choir members, musicians, teachers and teacher’s aids, Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers at Mass and bringing Communion to the Sick and home bound. We are all called to build up the Body of Christ. Please see or contact me if you want to answer this call to serve.

I am very happy to announce that Mr. Jay Maenhout will be our new Director of Music Ministries at Good Shepherd Parish. He will start on February 7th. Jay earned his B.M. in Music Theory/Composition (voice concentration) Summa Cum Laude in 2016 from Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ. He then went on to earn his M.A. in Musicology in 2018 from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He has been a voice and piano instructor in Sudbury, Director of Summer Performing Arts in Hudson, Director of Music at St. Bernadette Parish in Northborough and at St. Matthias in Marlborough. We are pleased as Jay joins us and brings his many gifts and talents to us at Good Shepherd Parish to help make our liturgies the best prayer to God.

Pax Christi,
Fr. Dave O’Leary - Pastor

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.
