Thank you for your generosity.

SPECIAL MINISTERS OF THE EUCHARIST NEEDED
 

Each Sunday morning, Ministers of the Eucharist bring Holy Communion to the residents at Royal Wayland and Sunrise. This is a wonderful ministry that brings comfort and peace to the residents. We are looking for two more volunteers to go to Sunrise, one for the first Sunday of the month and one person for the fifth Sunday of a month. Holy Communion is taken to the facility directly after the 8:30 am Mass and the distribution takes about 45 minutes. Training will be provided. If you are interested in this ministry, please contact Phil Langsdorf at plangsdorf@gmail.com.
 


FOR A SUMMER PROJECT

 

We are looking for a few people who would be interested in organizing the materials from both church libraries into one location. No library skills needed. If you are interested, please contact Sister Roberta at rrzeznik@goodshepherdwayland.org or 508-650-3545

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.

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.
