Good Shepherd Weekend 2023


April 28-30, 2023

The Fourth Sunday of Easter is known as Good Shepherd Sunday. We celebrate it as our parish feast day. But one day doesn’t seem like enough time to celebrate our many blessings as a parish and school. So, we’re making a weekend of it. Please mark your calendars and plan to join us at the dates and times listed below.

We will  hold 40 Hours of Eucharistic Adoration between 7:00 p.m. on Friday, April 29, and 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 30. Our goal is to have at least two people praying before the Blessed Sacrament throughout the 40 Hours. Please prayerfully consider signing up for one or more hours of Eucharistic Adoration throughout the weekend. We’re calling on the men of Good Shepherd to fill the overnight spots.

You can sign up for adoration here.

We will also hold a special parish celebration after the 10:30 Mass on Sunday, April 30. We need many volunteers to make this possible! To sign up to help HERE.
