Here are ways you can stay informed about Good Shepherd Church:
. The bulletin you receive from the ushers as you enter church is sometimes called "The Customary."  It contains details about the service with readings, prayers and hymns for the day.  An accompanying leaflet lists other information such as schedules, an events calendar, parish office hours, phone numbers to call for information and news about people at Good Shepherd.
. Our newsletter is offered online and as a print edition at church.  "The Heart of the Shepherd" is issued about eight times a year with current information about the parish, its members and their activities.  Listed in each issue are names of the Rector, assisting priests, vestry members and church staff.
. This website is updated as needed to help provide answers to questions you may have about The Church of the Good Shepherd and its people.
.  After Mass on Sunday is a good time to talk with Good Shepherd parishioners.  Many gather over coffee or tea (and sometimes a more complete breakfast).  Whether you are new to the parish or have been a member for some time, it's a pleasant way to become better acquainted with the people who worship with you.
