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."

Mass of Remembrance Invitation
 

November is the time in the Church’s liturgical calendar that we especially remember our loved ones who have completed their life’s journey among us. At the 10:30 AM Liturgy on Sunday November 2 we will remember in a special ritual parishioners who died during the past year. We would like to include parishioners’ loved ones who died during the past year and who were not members of our parish. During the ritual their names will be read and you will have the opportunity to light a candle in their honor. You are also invited to bring a picture of your loved one. There will be reserved seating for you on the right hand side of the church. A light luncheon will be served after Mass. If you wish your loved one to be remembered in this way, please call or e-mail Sister Roberta at 508.650.3545 or rrzeznik@goodshepherdwayland.org.  Please respond by October 28th.


“Cookies for College Students”
 

Good Shepherd Youth Ministry is continuing this great tradition of sending care packages to the former youth of our parish that are now away from home at college or in the military. Packages will be prepared and sent out on Wednesday, October 29th after school until 5 pm in St. Zepherin Center. You can help with this great tradition in three important ways:

1. High schoolers and middle schoolers: come to help put the packages together. This is a great way to do something for your older friends in the parish. We look forward to seeing you there!

2. Parents and friends of college students: Send us the name and addresses of college students and other former youth of our parish. Please follow the link on our website to fill out the form.

3. Donations: We welcome financial donations to help defray the cost of shipping (send checks to the parish with memo: Cookies for College Students) at any time. Other donations, including small and lightweight treats (candy, tea, inspirational quotes, pens, etc.) or a bag of your favorite cookie batter can be brought on the day of the event.

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 to our next exciting coming events that are on the parish calendar:

The committee needs more help to host these events.
