Living Stations of the Cross

admin : March 22, 2015 4:57 pm : Headlines
The Living Stations is going very well. Here is a list of the clothes your children need”

Greek Chorus (grade 5) and executioners – Neck to toe black. Black shirt, black pants, black socks. If you can’t get black socks, the children can go barefoot. With that many children using the stairs to the choir loft, if they wear shoes, it is very noisy.

Soldiers – tan shorts, and plain white t-shirts. At the moment, Walmart and Kohl’s have tan shorts in stock. The only kind of shoes they can wear are plain leather strap sandals. No flip flops. If they can’t get the sandals, again, they can go bare-footed.

Other than that, your child will be wearing a costume. We suggest that they wear summer weight, light-colored clothes underneath their costume, as it can get pretty warm on Good Friday evening with a packed church.

If there is any problem purchasing the shorts or t’s, please let us know.

Thanks

Carol

Happy St Patrick’s Day from Good Shepherd

Every Sunday after the 8:00 and 10:00 masses Good Shepherd welcomes parishioners to the Parish Hall for coffee, donuts, and some good conversation. It’s a great chance to relax with friends, meet new people, and in this case celebrate an affinity to light up shamrocks. It’s one of the many things that makes Good Shepherd such a welcoming atmosphere.

2015 Partners in Charity In Pew Appeal

admin : March 8, 2015 10:31 pm : Headlines

Next weekend, March 14 & 15, is our In Pew Commitment Weekend for the 2015 Partners in Charity Annual Appeal. Once a year, we commit ourselves to this ongoing work by supporting this life giving appeal. We reflect on God’s great generosity, and respond with generous giving of our own. With your support, faith in action is visible every day in the compassionate outreach of Catholic Charities, to the least among us; in the prayerful witness of our retired priests and the joy of new priestly vocations; to the many diocesan ministries and programs that heal, teach, and care for others. Please come to Mass next weekend prepared to make your commitment to the appeal. There is an insert in this week’s bulletin which explains how to fill out the pledge forms that you will receive at Mass next weekend. Thank you.

Lent Begins February 18th with Ash Wednesday Services

We begin the holy season of Lent on Ash Wednesday, February 18. The schedule is as follows:

8:45 AM Mass Main Church
11:00 AM Liturgy of the Word Crown and Eagle
3:30 PM Liturgy of the Word Main Church
7:00 PM Mass Main Church

As Catholics, we follow these sacrificial practices during Lent: Abstinence from meat is to be observed by all those who are 14 years of age and older, on Ash Wednesday, all the Fridays in Lent, and on Good Friday. Fasting is to be observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday by all who are 18 years of age but not yet 59. Those who are bound to fast may take only one full meal. Two smaller meals are permitted to maintain strength according to individual needs, but eating solid food between meals is not permitted.

Each Friday night during Lent, we will pray the Stations of the Cross at 6:30 PM in the main church. Please join us.

Evangelization Committee Sponsors Love From Home Program

admin : January 11, 2015 10:29 pm : Evangelical Committee, Headlines

In November the Evangelization and Outreach Committee sponsored its first program called  “Love from Home.” The program was geared at reaching out to students away at college to let them know that the parish is thinking about them and praying for their well being. Approximately 20 students were thrilled to arrive at their mailboxes to find a care package waiting for them from Good Shepherd. The package included homemade cookies, candy, chips, school supplies, a Dunkin Donuts gift card, and a hand carved crucifix among other items.

The committee looks to continue the program next fall and in doing so, hopes to reach out beyond parishioner families to friends or parishioners.  Please contact Roger Poulin at rogsk1fan@yahoo.com if you are interested in making a donation.
