Love from Home

We have students away at college who will be receiving care packages from their parish family called “Love From Home”. If your son, daughter or grandchild is away at college or serving in the military, please send us their address so we can mail a package to them. This program was initiated a couple years ago and the recipients showed much gratitude!

We are looking for donations of: microwave popcorn, soups, candy, pens, pencils, highlighters, post-it notes, small bags of munchies (like potato chips, doritos, etc.), $5 gift cards (Dunkin Donuts, Target, Walmart, etc.), toothpaste, toothbrushes, small boxes of tissues, a note from you wishing them well, prayer cards, cash donations to help pay for postage.

These items are inexpensive and will be enjoyed by all. We need all items by February 12 so we can mail them the week of February 20. A basket will be available in the front of the church and in the Mary Chapel. Thank you in advance for your support in spreading the “good news” here at Good Shepherd Parish.

Your Evangelization and Outreach Team: Joe Lydon, Don Callen, Bethany Pomfret, Linda Roberts and Roger Poulin.

Check out Pictures from our 2016 Parish BBQ

In September, 2016 Good Shepherd held its first annual Parish BBQ. The BBQ was free and open to the whole community. It was a great way to come together as a parish community and to welcome our neighbors. Looking forward to doing it again in 2017!

REQUEST FROM THE BASKET COMMITTEE

If you received gifts for Christmas that you may have extras of or just not what you need, please consider donating them. After holiday bargains and clearance items make wonderful basket fillers. We work year round to offer quality baskets and we depend on your donations. We have 2 baskets located at either side of the front entrance of the church for your donations.
