Welcome to Good Shepherd Parish!

We are one parish with two worship 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."

FIFTH SUNDAY OF EASTER

JESUS IS THE TRUE VINE

Today’s Gospel from John 15:1-8 is a great model of authentic Catholic spirituality. It contains three very important insights on how we are to live out our lives as believers.

First, we should be seeking and striving to be disciples who have a deep and intimate relationship with Jesus. This is accomplished with daily prayer, reading the Sacred Scriptures and recognizing all the blessings we have received from the Lord including the many things we are grateful for in our lives. We need to remember the original disciples took a long time to fully understand who and what Jesus is. The same is true for us; it is a lifetime of learning and deepening our relationship with Jesus.

Second, the Gospel today challenges us to see how abiding in Jesus means that we abide in community. We need one another; we need our parish family to support us and pray with us. Each Sunday our Prayers of the Faithful represent how we pray for one another. Here at Good Shepherd Parish we also have a prayer line where people can call in prayer requests. Each Sunday when we pray our Profession of Faith, we are called to recognize we abide in the community of “One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic”.

Finally, today’s Gospel shows us that living the life of a disciple means allowing the Lord to prune us. Yes, at times this might be painful, but the Lord knows the areas of our life where we need to change and give up in order to grow. So, the Lord prunes us of our attitudes and dispositions in order that we might bear more fruit.

*****

For the entire month of May we will be praying to our Blessed Mother Mary, for our First Reconciliation class of children, our First Holy Communion children, our Confirmation students on retreat, and those students receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. May the Blessed Mother bring all our children and students closer to Jesus her Son. A statue of the Blessed Mother will be moved to be in a more prominent position in the sanctuary for the month of May.

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.
