Welcome to the Good Shepherd Parish!

We are One Parish Worshipping at Two 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."

Parish Picnic to welcome, our new
Youth Minister, Tom Jackson
following the First Youth Mass on
September  7 at 5:00 pm

Good Shepherd will have its first Youth Mass of the year on Sunday, September 7th at 5:00 pm at St. Zepherin Church. Everyone is invited for Mass followed by a barbecue where you can meet our new Youth Minister, Tom Jackson.

All middle and high school students are especially invited to come.  Tom will be introduced at all Masses that weekend, but the Youth Mass will be an especially great time to get to know him and to relax with other teens from the parish. This Mass is for you and a great place to get involved.

Thank You


Many thanks to the Hospitality Committee (renamed from Parish Life) for providing light refreshments after the 8:30 AM Mass throughout July and August. The homemade breads were tasty and it was nice to connect with one another.

Looking forward there are several exciting coming events that are on the parish calendar:

Sunday, September 7 – Parish BBQ to welcome Tom Jackson, our new Director for Youth Ministry & Confirmation, after the 5 PM Mass

Sunday, October 5 – Welcome to New Families after the 5 PM Mass

Saturday, October 18 – Senior Dinner after the 4 PM Mass

Saturday, October 25 – Fund Raiser Dinner for Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos

The committee needs more help to host these events. If you are able to help with preparing the food, baking, serving, helping in the kitchen for one or more of these events, please be in contact with MaryAnn (508.358.6334) or Marilynn (508.788.6346). If you would like to be part of the planning, the next meeting is on Wednesday, September 3, 7 PM at Panera’s in Natick (Bldg 19 Plaza).

Gathering socially is an important part of being a parish community. We hope you will be able to join us and, maybe even lend a hand in their preparation.

Volunteer Opportunity! Grades 6-8 Religious Education

We want you!  Yes, you, please prayerfully consider passing along all that God has given you.  Our Middle School Youth want to hear your life experience.  Along with our curriculum that we provide, this is a wonderful gift that you can pass on to our young people here in the parish.

Ministry of Communion to the Homebound

Occasionally we receive a request to bring the Eucharist to someone who is unable to join our parish community for Sunday liturgy. To bring the Eucharist to someone who is homebound is an opportunity to bring the comfort and concern of Christ and the parish community to the home. Communion is brought to the homebound person on a day and at a time that is convenient for both the Eucharistic Minister and the recipient.

If you are interested in exploring this ministry, please contact Sister Roberta at rrzeznik@goodshepherdwayland.org or 508.650.3545.
