Welcome to Good Shepherd Parish!

We are One Parish with 2 Worship Sites

ANNOUNCEMENT

Please be advised that the Parish received a report that someone who was at both churches during the week of Monday, Nov. 16th was subsequently diagnosed with COVID-19.   We have notified the Wayland Board of Health.  We have also cleaned and disinfected both churches, including all pews, as we normally do after all daily and weekend Masses.

As the individual was wearing mask and was not in direct contact with parishioners, it is unlikely that anyone would have been in “close contact” with the infected individual.  We are issuing this notice, however, out of an abundance of caution.

Thank you for continuing to be vigilant about the importance of social distancing and wearing your mask at all times.


"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."

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.

EXTEND THE INVITATION
 

“Come and see” was the invitation Jesus offered to a few men of Galilee who were interested in knowing more about him – who he was, where he lived, what his teachings were about? This same invitation we extend to adults who have not been baptized or who have been baptized in another faith tradition but are interested in the Catholic faith or adults who have not received First Holy Communion or Confirmation. Please share this invitation with family members, neighbors or friends. Questions? Contact Fr Dave at [email protected] or 508.650.3545.
