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."

FROM FR. DAVE

 

 

“WE WALK BY FAITH, NOT BY SIGHT”

 

It was Pentecost weekend, May 30 & 31 2020 when Good Shepherd Parish had it’s first Sunday celebration of Mass with people in the church since the shut down in March 2020. It has now been over a year of in-person Mass          celebrations; no one has contracted any sickness or diseases. We have gone from spraying down all the benches after every Mass to now once a weekend. Now we have put back the Holy Water fonts at the doors of the churches and we are open for all people with masks or without!

 

Indeed, we walk by Faith, not by sight.

 

Ten years ago, Saint Ann Church and Saint Zepherin Church came together as Good Shepherd Parish. Many feared that one or another church was going to be closed and sold off. Yet, ten years later, we have had a very successful capital campaign to improve our two worship sites with needed repairs from up-dating heat & air conditioning systems, to live streaming capabilities.

 

I look back on my priestly ministry in amazement where I thought I was to be as an academic in a college, university or seminary. But God had other plans to send me to be Pastor here at Good Shepherd Parish, for which I am eternally grateful.

 

Indeed, we walk by Faith, not by sight.

 

So for June, July and August I am telling the staff to rest and take vacation time. To every one, after all we have been through, take some time and rest. Trust in the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit. Come the end of August we will have a parish picnic, September open houses, tours of the churches, and a full calendar of events to celebrate Good  Shepherd Parish’s 10th anniversary! We are open and will be inviting everyone to celebrate with us.

 

Yes, the tiny mustard is growing very large indeed.

 

We walk by Faith, not by sight.

 

Fr. Dave

Project Cornucopia is an initiative that was founded to combat the lack of produce available for distribution at many food pantries. It was developed by a Wayland High School Girl Scout for her Gold Award. Project Cornucopia runs monthly drives to supply produce for My Brothers Table. The produce drive kicked off Sunday July 11th and continues through Wednesday, July 14th. During this time you can drop off produce in the designated cooler at the side entrance to St. Ann's church. Project Cornucopia will run monthly. Please drop off some produce tomorrow or Wednesday to guarantee a successful kick off to this great project. If you have any other questions email: [email protected]

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.
