What does our staff do for fun and team building? We made a trip to Thistle Farms in Nashville, TN to learn how #LoveHeals every body; only to realize that this trip was as much for our own healing as it was to learn better how to love and heal the world. You can check out Thistle Farms at www.thistlefarms.org. Also pictured are friends from Thistle Farms, The Rev. Becca Stevens, founder & friend, and Jennifer, employee & friend!
Meet the Good Shepherd Vestry!
What is a Vestry? A vestry is a team of elected congregational members, each serving three-year terms, who work with the clergy to help form community, plan, take care of the building and its staff, and make major decisions about our work together.
Lori Fisher, Senior Warden
Lori joined Good Shepherd in February 2013 and currently serves as our senior warden. She was raised in Iowa and graduated from the University of Missouri School of Journalism many, many years ago. Lori is happily retired after being one of those ‘corporate communications and marketing types.’ She enjoys golf, traveling, reading, and spoiling her nephews, nieces, grand nephews and grand nieces.
A bit about Good Shepherd…
Rev. Pamela Dolan and Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd
The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd was established as a mission of the Diocese of Missouri in 1953, sponsored by St. Peter’s Church in Ladue. In 1956 the congregation became a parish, and located to its present site in Town & Country. The Rev. Pamela Dolan, the 6thRector since the church was founded, was called in 2012. Good Shepherd contonues to be a vibrant, friendly and welcoming parish. A video HERE highlights events, programs and celebrations in our Parish from January 2012 through January 2013. We have a lot of fun together as we explore and live our journey of faith. You are always welcome to join us for fun and fellowship.
