Parish Picnic
Sunday, June 11th 

Plan to join us for an afternoon of family fun on Sunday June 11.  We will have a special Mass at St. Ann at 10:30 followed by food, fun and games.  Volunteers will be needed to plan and staff this event. 

Please contact the religious education office if you can help.  508-650-3545


DIGNITY MATTERS is a new non-profit (based in Wayland) that supplies feminine hygiene products and underwear to women who are homeless or otherwise in need to help them stay healthy, regain self-confidence, and live with basic dignity.  This organization is filling one of the cracks in the system that hardly anybody realizes exists: homeless and critically poor women in Massachusetts and Rhode Island DESPERATELEY need tampons, sanitary napkins, and bras.  In a couple of weeks, Good Shepherd Parish will be collecting feminine hygiene products, new and gently used bras, and new underwear to benefit women in shelters in MetroWest.  Please look for the blue bins at each of the churches.  For further information visit dignity-matters.org or contact Jody at jpongratz@goodshepherdwayland.org or call 508-650-3545. Thank you for your generosity!


Alpha - coming in September!

Click here to learn more!

 

We would like to invite you to an Alpha information session at St Zepherin Center on Thursday, June 8 – 7:30-8:30 pm. At this session, we will describe the Alpha experience and outline the components to build an Alpha team to provide a successful experience at Good Shepherd Parish. The Evangelization Committee is committed to this way of “widening the circle” of our parish community.

We need your help. We hope to see you on June 8. RSVP to the parish office 508-650-3545 or parish@goodshepherdwayland.org.

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.
