Welcome to the Good Shepherd Parish!

"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."

Widening the Circle page for more info

On January 30, about seventy parishioners gathered for the first Widening the Circle event. At this gathering the speaker, Michael Lavigne, helped us look more deeply at our call as baptized followers of Jesus to bring the Good News of the Gospel to others in simple ways in our everyday lives. There were two presentations, small group and large group discussions. The enthusiasm of the participants was enriching and energizing. At this next Widening the Circle event we will continue to explore how we as a parish community can continue to fan the flame of our faith, build community and grow our parish. There will be new presentations and everyone is welcome! Didn’t attend the first event? Not a problem! You will still be able to have an enriching and uplifting experience. Pre-Registration is important to our planning.

Please plan to join us and register by April 24 at jparrish@goodshepeherdwayland.org or call Jen at 508.650.3545 -  WE WANT TO WELCOME YOU


The Good Shepherd Parish 2016 Catholic Appeal campaign is off to a wonderful start! With $41,981 already pledged, we are at 64% of goal. The early outpouring of support from so many helps sustain the important ministries that make Good Shepherd a vibrant place of worship. If you have yet to give, please pick up a pledge form at the back of the church or visit bostoncatholicappeal.org. Thank you for your prayers and support.



The Stephen Ministry program--now in its second year at Good Shepherd Parish and in more than 700 Catholic parishes--trains individuals who care so that they can move beyond caring to helping.   Each Stephen Minister receives 50 hours of training to learn how to use both words and deeds to express Christ’s care for others---listening and comforting, supporting and encouraging, and praying. 

We are beginning a second Stephen Ministry training in the spring. There will be a general information session about Stephen Ministry on Monday, April 25 at 7 pm in St Zepherin Center. This session will further describe Stephen Ministry, the qualifications of a Stephen Minister, the training process and how to apply.

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.

Children’s Liturgy takes place during the 10:30 Sunday Mass on weeks when Religious Education is held.  The Children’s Liturgy allows the children to continue to participate in Mass in a way that is more easily accessible and engaging to them.   The leader prepares a simple activity and brief explanation of the readings for children in grades k-5. Materials outlining activity ideas and summary children’s homily are provided. Leaders are scheduled on a rotating basis approximately every four weeks based on availability.  Training and support are provided.  Please contact Sue Muldoon in the Religious Education Office for more information.
