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."

Events Celebrating Good Shepherd Parish’s Tenth Anniversary

We the parish family of Good Shepherd Parish have much to rejoice over at God’s Blessing to us. This is our tenth anniversary of coming together as one parish in unity, Saint Ann and Saint Zepherin, 2011 – 2021. We are the oldest of the newly formed standalone parishes. Ten years is indeed time to rejoice. On July 1st Cardinal O’Malley approved our new Pastoral Plan that our writing team developed over many months of hard work. We will be hearing from the writing team in September about their work and about the new Pastoral Plan. To celebrate our ten years of unity, there are plans coming together for August through December 2021. Here are a few events already confirmed:

Monthly Concerts First Sunday of the Month, Aug. 1st, Sept. 5th, Oct. 3rd, Nov.7th

The tabernacle has been moved back to its original place in the center of St. Ann Church behind the altar. We are waiting for the Archdiocesan engineers to review the bids for the bathroom at St. Ann’s. The work will begin soon. And we will be installing the equipment over the coming weeks for live streaming from St. Zepherin Church. Please share and invite family members, friends, and neighbors to all our up-coming events celebrating Good Shepherd Parish’s 10th Anniversary!

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.
