05/18/2016: Rosary Makers Meet

The Rosary Makers Group will meet in the St. John Paul II Room on Wednesday evening at 6:30 PM. We are a group dedicated to making rosaries to help spread God’s word and Mary’s message to pray the rosary. Each year we provide rosaries to the children in our First Communion class here at Good Shepherd. We also give rosaries to those in nursing homes, hospitals, and prisons, and we have provided over 3,500 rosaries to the Missions and to US troops worldwide. Hands on instructions and materials are provided. (There is a very small cost for materials.) Future dates are May 18 and June 15. We would love for you to join us!

Partners in Charity Appeal

Our yearly commitment for the 2016 Diocesan Partners in Charity Appeal has now begun. In keeping with Pope Francis’ Holy Year of Mercy, the theme for this year’s appeal is “Called to be Merciful.” Every member of our parish is called upon to support the work of our Lord Jesus Christ made possible through this annual appeal. We reflect on God’s great generosity, and respond with generous giving of our own. Our parish goal has been increased to $40,000.00.

We are grateful to all who have helped us reach our parish goal the past 2 years. If you have not able to make a donation in the past, we ask you to prayerfully consider doing so this year. With everyone’s support, we can do this!

Thank You
