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."

BELIEF AS TRUST

Second Sunday of Lent 
 Recently I heard two new takes on the story of Abraham and Isaac in the first reading today. First in Genesis 22:5 there is a line we do not have in the reading today. Abraham says to the servants; “We will come back to you.”  In other words, Abraham knew that he and Isaac would both be returning. Abraham trusted in God. 


 The second new insight I heard recently was the understanding that Abraham was a very old man at this point in time and Isaac was a strong adult man. Isaac could have overpowered his Dad at any point. But he trusted. 
 Saint Paul in the Second Reading today is reminding the believing community at Rome to trust in God. Indeed nothing can separate us from the love of God that comes in Christ Jesus. Now remember the community at Rome was experiencing great    sufferings, arrests and even death. Yet Paul’s message is one of trust.

 
 The Gospel for today is Jesus’ transfiguration in front of Peter, James and John. All three of them had to trust that Jesus surpasses the Law and the Prophets represented by Moses and Elijah. They had to trust, to come down the mountain and live the day-to-day journey towards Jerusalem with Jesus. 
 At  each and every Mass we attend, the Holy Sacrifice of the Eucharistic prayer is presented before us.  We have to believe and trust that simple gifts of bread and wine become the body, blood, soul and divinity of our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ. 


 This Lent let us see belief as trust. And see Jesus is the one we trust in each and every day. 
 Pax Christi, 
 Fr. Dave

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.
