On February 2nd, Fr. Jay visited Diakonie Vienna's Ukranian Migrant Center, one of Good Shepherd's Outreach partners. On Sunday, March 12, he will report on the visit, the work of the center, the people, and his own insights from the day.
Confirmation Outreach Project

Thank you to the Confirmands who gathered on February 26th and assembled 25 Kids Bags for the Newton Food Pantry. Pictured above (l-r): Elizah Franklin, Elodie Weinzierl, Alex Russel, Seamus Boyd, Hayden Boyd, Christopher Manthei, and Brendan Corkery.

Confirmation will meet again next Sunday, March 12th, following the Celtic Eucharist.

Lenten Intentions and Devotions

Please find a 2023 Lenten Guide attached here. This is a great resource for the whole family during the season, and it was composed by a former Good Shepherd parishioner and CE teacher, Chesarae Valentine.

2023 Bishops' Annual Appeal 
This week begins the Bishops' Annual Appeal with the ambitious goal of raising $300,000. These funds provide financial support for our diverse shared ministries and initiatives ranging from lifelong Christian formation, to youth and young adult ministries, to racial justice and creation care initiatives, to multicultural and immigration outreach. 

The appeal newsletter and donation envelope will be available at the back of the church or by contacting Callie in the parish office. Please place your gift in the Offering on Ingathering Sunday, March 19th. You may also mail it directly to the diocesan offices. Together, we are able to accomplish that which we cannot do alone!

More information can be found by accessing:
