WE WELCOME YOU TO RECEIVE HOLY COMMUNION.

Those who have not been admitted to Holy Communion may come forward to the altar rail for a blessing. Simply cross you arms over your chest as you kneel to receive a blessing. Please know that we are honored to have you worshipping with us today!
JESUS SAID, "LET THE LITTLE CHILDREN COME TO ME, AND DO NOT HINDER THEM, FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN BELONGS TO SUCH AS THESE." Matthew 19:14. In keeping with the words of Jesus, all children are welcome at all services at Good Shepherd Anglican Church. A Cry Room, equipped with TV and Speaker, is provided should your little one become distressed. Thank You!
ANOINTING FOR HEALING AVAILABLE AFTER EACH SUNDAY MASS. Good Shepherd offers a team of clergy and/or lay intercessors who are honored to hear & pray for your requests for intercessions for needs of body, soul, or spirit. Simply linger after the Mass is over, and look for them at the prayer desk located on the “Gospel” side (left of the altar as you look from the nave of the church. You are welcome to stay and pray.
IN TODAY’S GOSPEL JESUS PREDICTS “WHEN I AM LIFTED UP, I WILL DRAW ALL MEN TO MYSELF”! The Cross of Christ is the place of Glory and Grace. The Love that moved Jesus to lay down His life for us draws US to behold Him, and to love Him in return!
