Слава Ісусу Христу! Слава на віки! Glory To Jesus Christ! Glory Forever! Our wish for you -- “Stay safe!” Dear Sisters and Brothers, OUR CHURCH IS NOW OPEN. WE ARE BY NO MEANS IN THE CLEAR. PLEASE FOLLOW ALL HEALTH AND SAFETY PROCEDURES WHEN YOU ATTEND. Visit our NEW website at https://www.christthegoodshepherd.com PRAYER DURING A PANDEMIC May we who are merely inconvenienced remember those whose lives are at stake. May we who have no risk factors remember those most vulnerable. May we who have the luxury of working from home remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.May we who have the flexibility to care for our children remember those who have no options.May we who have to cancel our trips remember those that have no place to go. May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market remember those who have no margin at all. May we who settle in for a quarantine at home remember those who have no home. And ... During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other, let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbours.

♦️ARTICLE ABOUT SMALLER PARISHES Interesting article about how smaller parish communities have advantages over large parishes. Please read the article and think about our own parish. How can we ensure that our faith comes alive through our parish in a way that encourages and impacts those who seek Christ in our Church? https://www.ncregister.com/daily-news/small-is-beautiful-how-catholic-faith-comes-alive-in-small-parishes?fbclid=IwAR1KvF_ZxwkVc9j2Nbn2pFKYWO_rl703XVAnbO96AdNl6co4e_wUORRpMdg
♦️Повідомлення прихожан про підтримку парафії. Я сподіваюся і молюсь, щоб ви залишалися здоровими - і фізично, і духовно. Будь ласка, дайте мені знати, чи може парафія допомогти вам у ці важкі часи. Сердечно дякуємо багатьом нашим парафіянам котрі посилають або передають свої пожертви на церкву. Нехай вас Бог благословить, що пам’ятаєте про свою парафію. ♦️Message for parishioners for support of parish No doubt you are aware that our parish relies on the support of our parishioners to operate – everything is funded through the generosity of our parish community.
