Welcome to Good Shepherd Parish!

We are one parish with two worship 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."

Easter Season

Easter is the day for telling the wondrous story: Mary Magdalene saw the stone moved away, Peter went in and saw the wrappings on the ground, and the beloved disciple saw and believed. Our faith is built on their testimony. Easter is our festival of life for the boldness of God’s love snatched victory from the jaws of death. Our memories and rituals unite us with that event which was so disconcerting, marvelous, and liberating.

Sunday after Sunday and especially on this greatest Sunday of the year, we enter into events which show Easter as more than a once-upon-a-time event. We bless and share a meal that shapes us as the Body of Christ. We use water to renew our Baptismal promises. We sing alleluias and say the good news still takes flesh in our world.

The second reading from Colossians shows us still another dimension to Easter Sunday. Implicit within all these celebrations, there is a sense of the future. We can be intent on “things above rather than on things of earth.” Easter is also a promise of the end time. Our festivals now take place in a sinful world and in a still imperfect Church. But in the celebration, we taste that time when we will all be in God’s Glory! We now have a fifty-day celebration of the Easter season up to Pentecost Sunday.

“To the Paschal Victim let Christians offer a sacrifice of praise. For the lamb has redeemed the sheep. Christ sinless, reconciled sinners to the Father. Death and life were locked together in a unique struggle. Life’s captain died; now he reigns, never more to die. Tell us Mary, “What did you see on the way?” “I saw the tomb of the now living Christ. I saw the glory of Christ, now risen. I saw angels who gave witness; the cloths too which once had covered head and limbs. Christ my hope has arisen! He will go before his own to Galilee.

We know that Christ has indeed risen from the dead. To you, conqueror and king, have mercy on us. Amen! Alleluia!” From the Easter Sequence On behalf of the entire Good Shepherd Staff, please know of our prayers for you and your loved ones.

Pax Christi,

Fr. Dave O’Leary

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.
