Welcome to Good Shepherd Parish!

We are one parish with two worship sites.

Good Shepherd Parish Vision Statement

Good Shepherd Parish strives to be a vibrant, welcoming community where every person can experience the Father’s love. Through the Gospel proclamation, prayer, and joyous sacramental celebration, Good Shepherd Parish will inspire parishioners to discern and live out their vocations and to actively evangelize the world. As we bear witness to the Risen Christ, Our Lord and Savior, we aspire to serve our parish community. We will seek to welcome home the new, the lost, and the disheartened by using the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit.

Twenty-Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Then he took a little child, stood him in their midst, and putting his arms around him, said to them “Whoever welcomes a child such as this for my sake welcomes me. And whoever welcomes me welcomes, not me, but him who sent me.” (Mark 9:37)

Jesus’ words in today’s Gospel reminds us of the need for communion, participation, and mission. A) Communion – We are part of the Good Shepherd Family in the Archdiocese of Boston of the Roman Catholic Church. We are part of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. B) Participation – Members of our parish writing team worked hard on our new Pastoral Plan and will be speaking at all Masses this weekend to share their insights on the Pastoral Plan. We all have a role in this plan; everyone is asked to participate. C) Mission – We as Disciples of Jesus have a mission to show and share love, to be welcoming and actively extending an invitation to others to join us around the table of the Lord for the Eucharist.

Looking at the example of Jesus – Who always took the side of those who were rejected, marginalized, isolated, mocked, beaten, or abused – can help us move ahead in communion, participation, and mission.

We all need to lead with charity in our daily lives that affirms through our words and actions the dignity of every person, each created in God’s image and likeness. Even with those with whom we disagree are made in God’s image.

Let us ask for the grace each and every day to be welcoming, act with charity and live as Disciples of Jesus.

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.
