What’s Happening

We still have change boxes to support the UTO!

Remember, this isn’t just about charity or generosity, but about cultivating the practice of gratitude. Every time you experience something for which to be grateful, take a moment to feel the gratitude and then give thanks by dropping a little money into the box, knowing it will go to a good cause.
See Deacon Susan for a box! 
Boxes are due April 30.

Exciting news:

The Community of St. Brigid

The Community of St. Brigid is coming to Good Shepherd:  Beginning on Sunday, June 11, Good Shepherd will be the site of a weekly gathering of the members of the Community of St. Brigid, a ministry partnership approved by the Vestry and also by our Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Wayne Smith. The Sunday evening events will be based on the model of a “Farm Church” or “Supper Church,” and will be open to all, both members of Good Shepherd and newcomers alike. The gatherings will include time in the garden, a simple meal, and aworship service (outdoors, weather permitting). St. Brigid’s is the brainchild of our rector, the Rev. Dr. Pamela Dolan, and her colleagues the Rev. Maria Evans and the Rev. Kevin McGrane. More information will be forthcoming, but in the mean time mark your calendars and consider supporting this new ministry initiative in the Diocese of Missouri to whatever extent feels like a good fit for you.
All are welcome!
